The making of the Soviet system : essays in the social history of interwar Russia by Moshe Lewin( Book )

41 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this Now-Classic Book, The Making of the Soviet System, Moshe Lewin traces the transformation of Russian society and the Russian political system in the period between the two world wars, a transformation that was to lead to Stalinism in the 1930s. Lewin focuses on the changes stemming from war, revolution, civil war, and industrialization, and he discusses such topics as rural society and religion in the twentieth century; the background of Soviet collectivization; Soviet prewar policies of agricultural procurement; the kolkhoz and the muzhik; Leninism and Bolshevism; industrial relations during the five-year plans of 1928-1941; and the social background of Stalinism. Through this comprehensive approach to understanding the origins and problems of Stalinism, Lewin makes a significant contribution to the study of Russia's social history before the revolution as well as in the Soviet period."--BOOK JACKET

Russia--USSR--Russia : the drive and drift of a superstate by Moshe Lewin( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moshe Lewin's major new book is an original and important work that clarifies the sweeping changes that transformed Russia in the twentieth century from a muzhik country to the urban power we read about today. As in his previous works, Professor Lewin's extraordinary breadth of knowledge and sympathy allow him to deal with the "grand narrative of cultural transformation" that goes well beyond simple studies of urban growth or industrialization. The Soviet Union, as Lewin reminds us, was a rural country well into the post-World War II era, becoming predominantly urban only in the mid-1960s. The fascinating story that emerges from this book is one of a country that is becoming increasingly more complex even as it retains a "relatively primative configuration of power." Professor Lewin goes on to show the historical roots of recent change. In the 1920s it was the government that was impatient to change, while society was transforming itself slowly. Recent years have seen a reversal of this situation, where a largely bureaucratic state simply lost its ability to govern a rapidly changing society. Professor Lewin's analysis lays bare the underlying causes behind the present chaos in the former Soviet Union, where a government that barely understands the new forces that have been so dramatically unleashed finds itself totally unable to control them
Stalinism : its nature and aftermath : essays in honour of Moshe Lewin by Nicholas Lampert( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of essays (with contributors from Britain, Continental Europe and the USA) dealing with the character and aftermath of Stalinism in the USSR. The focus is on the interwar years and on the methodological problems of studying this period, but the volume highlights also the links between Stalinism and the Tsarist past, and the ways in which Stalinism, in its very formation, prepared the ground for its own demise. In this way it contributes to a historical understanding of the current upheavals in the Soviet Union

El siglo soviético : ¿qué sucedió realmente en la Unión Soviética? by Moshe Lewin( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in Spanish and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Unión Soviética puede haber dejado de existir, pero su historia continúa siendo relevante quizás hoy más que nunca. Sin embargo es una historia que durante mucho tiempo se reveló imposible de escribir, no sólo a causa de falta de documentación accesible, sino porque se ubicaba en el corazón de una confrontación ideológica que oscurecía la realidad del régimen soviético. Este gran libro de Moshe Lewin consigue mostrarnos el funcionamiento real del sistema político, desmitificar los tópicos establecidos y ofrecernos nuevas perspectivas para ayudarnos a establecer un balance más objetivo de sus éxitos y sus fracasos
Russie-URSS-Russie : 1917-1991 by Moshe Lewin( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Le jugement de Moshe Lewin est sans appel : le régime issu de la révolution d'Octobre est "un système barbare construit sur les ruines d'un grand idéal émancipateur". La Révolution russe n'a pas ouvert une ère nouvelle dans l'histoire de l'humanité, mais frayé le passage complexe, mouvementé et violent d'une Russie précapitaliste à une Russie capitaliste. Moshe Lewin souligne les discontinuités et les continuités entre la Russie d'avant la révolution et l'URSS. Il insiste notamment sur le chauvinisme grand-russe comme composante essentielle de l'idéologie du régime. Dénoncé au début des années 1920 par Lénine comme l'un de ses pires représentants, Staline célébrera, aux lendemains de 1945, la " grande et sainte Russie ". Dans les années 1960, quand le régime entame son déclin, le nationalisme grand-russe pénètre toutes les instances de l'Etat et du parti. Moshe Lewin déconstruit également l'assimilation de l'URSS au " communisme ", paradoxalement partagée par les adversaires du communisme et par les nostalgiques du système. Alors que certains, au prétexte que l'histoire aurait mal tourné, souhaitent déchirer la page, il fournit un éclairage sur ce "continent disparu " et restitue à l'URSS sa véritable place dans la réflexion sur la révolution et le socialisme."
Bukharin in retrospect by Theodor Bergmann( )

2 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the product of an international conference held in the autumn of 1988, around the time Nikolai Bukharin was officially rehabilitated - a benchmark in the history of glasnost and the process of legitimating perestroika. Conference participants from 19 countries, including the USSR and China, took occasion to reconsider the record and legacy of Bukharin as revolutionary, economist and political theorist. They offer a many-sided but critical re-examination of Bolshevism's "internal alternative" to Stalin and Stalinism."--Provided by publisher
