Dictatorship implies oppression and arbitrary violence from above. However, this volume and the Mass Dictatorship in the 20th Century series to which it contributes dismantles that general assumption. Everyday Life in Mass Dictatorship explores the multiple forms and practices of ordinary people as they became active participants in the grand mobilisation of society not only promised, but actively pursued by dictatorial regimes in the 20th century. The volume is centrally concerned with two aspects of collusion and evasion: warfare and ruthless policies of exclusion.

The impact this avalanche of unbounded violence had on survivors and successive generations is the overarching theme of the studies presented in this volume on post-colonial and post-Stalinist dictatorships. The extent to which post-colonial regimes carried on non-democratic asymmetries of power or established them anew is breathtaking. Yet the prospects of better living and 'modern times' met with overwhelming popular support in the East and West, as well as in the global North and South.

About the Author:

Alf Lüdtke is retired from the Max-Planck-Institute for History, in Göttingen, Germany, and the University of Erfurt, Germany, where he is now Honorarprofessor. He has held Visiting Professorships at universities in the U.S. (Princeton University, the University of Chicago, the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor), Israel, and South Korea. He researches domination and violence, transformations of industrial work, the emergence of 'modern' forms of the visual, and the history of the everyday. Recent publications include: Unsettling History: Archiving and Narrating in Historiography (co-editor); Istorija povsednevnosti v Germanii; Kolonialgeschichten (co-editor); and Polizei, Gewalt und Staat im 20: Jahrhundert (co-editor).

Review:

“The volume edited by Lüdtke is as a highly stimulating and thought provoking contribution on everyday life under mass dictatorships. It succeeds in giving a new twist to the protracted historiographical debates on the agency of the ‘masses’ ... . The volume thus reveals the intersections between the everyday life in the classic totalitarian regimes and in colonial/postcolonial settings.” (Ángel Alcalde, German Studies Review, Vol. 40 (2), May, 2016)
