About the Author:

Slava Gerovitch is Lecturer in History of Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA.

Review:

“Slava Gerovitch  ... has published a fascinating primary source in Voices of the Soviet Space Program. This book consists of thirteen interviews with cosmonauts, soldiers, and engineers that Gerovitch ... conducted from 2002 to 2010 over several oral history projects. ... The interviews enable the reader to learn about the beginnings of the Soviet space program ... . This is an important contribution to space history, cold war history, the history of the USSR, and the history of technology.” (Paul Josephson, Technology and Culture, Vol. 57, April, 2016)

“Slava Gerovitch ... has assembled here a vibrant collection of thirteen interviews that he conducted with Russian space personalities in the U.S. and Russia between 2002 and 2010. ... This is all a rare and welcome achievement in the literature. ... In sum, this excellent book reveals new facts and insights on the personal, institutional, technical, and political facets of Soviet rocketry and spaceflight policies and practices between the Second World War and the end of the Cold War.” (Michael G. Smith, Slavic Review, Vol. 75 (2), Summer, 2016)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 304 pages. Despite the wealth of information and archival material that has become available in the years following the fall of the USSR, the history of the Soviet space program has been dominated by the accounts of a select few, such as the recent four-volume English translation of Russian rocket designer Boris Chertok. In this remarkable oral history, author and interviewer Slava Gerovitch helps to enrich and complicate space historiography by presenting interviews with the men and women who witnessed Soviet space efforts firsthand, from the cosmonauts themselves to the military officials who directed the program to the engineers who made real the grand ambitions of the USSR. Rather than comprising a monolithic master narrative, these fascinating and varied accounts bring to light the often divergent perspectives, experiences, and institutional cultures that defined the Soviet space program. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781137481788
