9780847683222: Censorship in Soviet Literature, 1917-1991

In the first comprehensive picture of Soviet literary censorship, Herman Ermolaev highlights the aims of censorship and its evolution during shifts in Communist Party policy. He draws on a great variety of primary and secondary sources, including over 200 literary works; the Soviet government's decrees on censorship and publishing; books and articles on censorship; political and historical writings; and personal correspondences with writers, editors, and a former high-ranking Glavlit official.

About the Author:

Herman Ermolaev is professor of Russian and Soviet literature at Princeton University. His previous books include Soviet Literary Theories, 1917-1934: The Genesis of Socialist Realism and an edited translation of Maxim Gorky's Untimely Thoughts: Essays on Revolution, Culture, and the Bolsheviks, 1917-1918.

Review:

This book is a pathbreaking attempt to trace the development and workings of Soviet literary censorship from 1917-1991. The style is witty and pungent, and the scholarship, solid and impressive. (John B. Dunlop, Stanford University)

Herman Ermolaev's new book is an excellent contribution to this [Soviet censorship] literature and will be of interest to scholars, students, and general readers. (Slavic Review)

A revealing and detailed historical overview . . . (CHOICE)

A systematic history of Soviet Russian literature is still waiting to be written. However, when it does appear, Herman Emolaev's study of Soviet (Russian) censorship will be a key companion to it. He has produced a detailed overview of this complex phenomenon, added to it a range of important examples, and documented it all very capably. The result is a readable and usable guide to a very nasty business. (Allan Reid The International Fiction Review)
