9780195101973: Peasant Rebels Under Stalin: Collectivization and the Culture of Peasant Resistance

This history of the peasant rebellion against Soviet collectivization demonstrates that the scope of peasant resistance was more serious than previously assumed. Drawing upon Soviet archives, it documents the manifestation in Stalin's Russia of a virtual civil war between state and peasantry.

Review:

"An important contribution to the social history of collectivization, the Soviet peasantry, and peasant resistance in general."--Choice

"This is an impressively researched and well written study that will surely become a standard work on Soviet collectivization and peasant revolt. It is a book steeped in the comparative literature of peasant studies as well as in Soviet archival materials, and social historians outside the Russian field should find it no less engrossing and valuable that their colleages in Russian/Soviet history."--Journal of Social History

"...Viola merits praise for drawing new attention to the question and for recovering lost voices who nearly drowned in the cataclysms of recent times."--Agricultural History

"Viola documents each of her major themes in a meticulous and compelling way thereby making Peasant Rebels an impressive scholarly achievement. Her work breaks new ground..."--Canadian Slavonic Papers

"Peasant Rebels Under Stalin will undoubtedly become the standard work for understanding the stages and wide variety of responses to the Soviet party-state's violent assault on the countryside and rural culture generally."--Slavic Review

"This is revisionist scholarship at its very best. Viola reveals an entirely new dimension to important historical phenomena such as collectivization and state-society relations under Stalin. Her work offers much to those interested in Russian-Soviet history, peasant studies, revolution, gender differences in political behavior, and the origins of Stalinist totalitarianism."--American Historical Review

"...a thought-provoking book about peasant resistance to Stalin's reconstruction of the countryside....Viola's book opens a fascinating window on the peasant world...[It] will be a starting point for all serious thought on the subject."--The Journal of Economic History

"Viola merits praise for drawing new attention to the question and for recovering lost voices who nearly drowned in the cataclysms of recent times."--Agricultural History

"Viola documents each of her major themes in a meticulous and compelling way, thereby making Peasant Rebels an impressive scholarly achievement. Her work breaks new ground...."--Canadian Slavonic Papers
