Russians regarded the Soviet Union as their country, but that did not mean they were entirely happy with it. In the end, in fact, Russia actually destroyed the Soviet Union. How did this happen, and what kind of Russia emerged? Historian Hosking explores what the Soviet experience meant for Russians. Messianism--the idea rooted in Russian Orthodoxy that the Russians were a "chosen people"--Was reshaped by the communists into messianic socialism, in which the Soviet order would lead the world in a new direction. Hosking analyzes how the Soviet state molded Russian identity; the dislocations resulting from collectivization and industrialization; the relationship between ethnic Russians and other Soviet peoples; the effects of World War II on ideas of homeland and patriotism; and leadership and the cult of personality. At the heart of this work is the fundamental question of what happens to a people who place their nationhood at the service of empire.--From publisher description

The paths of history by Igorʹ Mikhaĭlovich Dʹi︠a︡konov( )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a broad and ambitious study of the entire history of humanity which takes as its point of departure Marx's theory of social evolution. However, Professor Diakonoff's theory of world history differs from Marx's in a number of ways. Firstly he has expanded Marx's five stages of development to eight. Secondly he denies that social evolution necessarily implies progress and shows how 'each progress is simultaneously a regress', and thirdly he demonstrates that the transition from one stage to another is not necessarily marked by social conflict and that sometimes this is achieved peacefully and gracefully. As the book moves through these various stages, the reader is drawn into a remarkable and thought-provoking study of the process of the history of the human race which focuses on the wide range of factors (economic, social, military-technological, and socio-pyschological) which have influenced our development from palaeolithic times to the present day

Trust : a history by Geoffrey A Hosking( Book )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today there is much talk of a 'crisis of trust'; a crisis which is almost certainly genuine, but usually misunderstood. Trust: A History offers a new perspective on the ways in which trust and distrust have functioned in past societies, providing an empirical and historical basis against which the present crisis can be examined, and suggesting ways in which the concept of trust can be used as a tool to understand our own and other societies. Geoffrey Hosking argues that social trust is mediated through symbolic systems, such as religion and money, and the institutions associated with them, such as churches and banks. Historically these institutions have nourished trust, but the resulting trust networks have tended to create quite tough boundaries around themselves, across which distrust is projected against outsiders. Hosking also shows how nation-states have been particularly good at absorbing symbolic systems and generating trust among large numbers of people, while also erecting distinct boundaries around themselves, despite an increasingly global economy. He asserts that in the modern world it has become common to entrust major resources to institutions we know little about, and suggests that we need to learn from historical experience and temper this with more traditional forms of trust, or become an ever more distrustful society, with potentially very destabilising consequences."--Back cover
