Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this volume, one of the foremost historians of the Soviet Union chronicles the fierce battle on 'the cultural front' from the October Revolution through the Stalinist 1930s. Sheila Fitzpatrick brings together ten of her essays which illuminate key arenas of this prolonged struggle over cultural values and institutional control.'The Cultural Front' is essential reading for anyone interested in the formative history of the Soviet Union and the dynamic relationship between culture and politics.

Review:

"In this useful collection of her previously published work, Professor Sheila Fitz-patrick gives her many admirers a chance to review the evolution of the relationship between culture and politics in the old Soviet Union. Battles on the cultural front, scandals, horrors, and diversions come together in a unique harmony that marks a mature scholar." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
