Synopsis:      Swearing, drunkenness, promiscuity, playing loud music, brawling--in the Soviet Union these were not merely bad behavior, they were all forms of the crime of "hooliganism." Defined as "rudely violating public order and expressing clear disrespect for society," hooliganism was one of the most common and confusing crimes in the world's first socialist state. Under its shifting, ambiguous, and elastic terms, millions of Soviet citizens were arrested and incarcerated for periods ranging from three days to five years and for everything from swearing at a wife to stabbing a complete stranger.
         
     Hooligans in Khrushchev's Russia offers the first comprehensive study of how Soviet police, prosecutors, judges, and ordinary citizens during the Khrushchev era (1953-1964) understood, fought against, or embraced this catch-all category of criminality. Using a wide range of newly opened archival sources, it portrays the Khrushchev period--usually considered as a time of liberalizing reform and reduced repression--as an era of renewed harassment against a wide range of state-defined undesirables. Brian LaPierre shows the illiberal underside of a Thaw that did more than roll back some of the more egregious abuses of Stalinism. He uncovers how the Thaw unleashed an energetic and intrusive campaign to expand policing and persecution to the most mundane aspects of everyday life. In an atmosphere of Cold War competition, foreign cultural penetration, and transatlantic anxiety over "rebels without a cause," hooliganism emerged as a vital tool that post-Stalinist elites used to civilize their uncultured working class, confirm their embattled cultural ideals, and create the right-thinking and right-acting socialist society of their dreams.

About the Author: Brian LaPierre is associate professor of history at the University of Southern Mississippi.
