Synopsis:
In this book, a team of scholars from Russia, Germany, the US, Canada, Switzerland and Britain investigates the relationship between Soviet society and regime in the revolutionary period and in the Stalin years from the 1920s to the 1940s, with an additional section on the Bolsheviks' relations with the outside world. Using fresh archival evidence, they shed light on Bolshevik relations with a wide range of geographically scattered social groups, on popular reactions to initiatives and policies of the regime, and on the survival of traditional attitudes.
