The women's liberation movement in Russia : feminism, nihilism, and bolshevism, 1860-1930 by Richard Stites( Book )

44 editions published between 1977 and 2004 in English and Russian and held by 1,153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a brilliant treatment of many facets of its subject, but it also ends up being, for the reader, one of the finest general histories to be found, of these crucial years in Russian history. The source material is unbelievably detailed, and clearly cited on each page. Not only that, the writing is, at many points, the boldest, clearest I've almost ever found in the Academy. The author's opinions, summaries, insights easily spill out of the historical constructions. The presence of the author's psyche (he never hides behind his quotes) means the material is contoured. The reader gets, not only huge amounts of information, but an authorial presence, as company, that is often daring, bold, insightful, revelatory. And one stylistic point made me especially happy: when Stites uses metaphors to explain history, these are revelatory, and their internal implications are followed through in the prose."--Www.goodreads.com (Feb. 2, 2011.)
Russian popular culture : entertainment and society since 1900 by Richard Stites( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a side of Russian life that is largely unknown to the West - the world of popular culture. By surveying detective and science fiction, popular songs, jokes, box office movie hits, stage, radio and television, Professor Richard Stites introduces the people and cultural products that are household words to Russian people. Spanning the entire twentieth century, the author examines the subcultures that draw upon and enrich Russian popular culture. He explores the relationship between popular culture and the national and social values of the masses, including their heroes and myths, and assesses the phenomenon of the celebrity from the silent screen star to the latest rock music idol. Richard Stites pays particular attention to the dramatic battle between elite and popular culture and to the intervention of revolutions, wars, and the state in the production and control of this culture

European culture in the Great War : the arts, entertainment, and propaganda, 1914-1918 by Aviel Roshwald( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is a commonplace to refer to the First World War as a historical watershed, but the nature of that great cataclysm's impact upon European society and culture remains a hotly debated topic. Yet the English-language literature remains dominated by a disproportionate emphasis on the Western European experience." "This book seeks to redress the balance by giving equal attention to the countries of Eastern and Central Europe, where the consequences and repercussions of the war were arguably even more drastic than in the West. This volume also distinguishes itself by focussing specifically on cultural change during the course of the war, as distinct from the after-effects and memories of the conflict. The broad comparative scope of this work is further enhanced by its treatment of high culture and popular culture in relation to one another, and within the framework of the political and military events of 1914-18"--Jacket

The four horsemen : riding to liberty in post-Napoleonic Europe by Richard Stites( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of revolts starting in 1820, four military officers rode forth on horseback from obscure European towns to bring political freedom and a constitution to Spain, Naples, and Russia; and national independence to the Greeks. The men who launched these exploits from Andalusia to the snowy fields of Ukraine--Colonel Rafael del Riego, General Guglielmo Pepe, General Alexandros Ypsilanti, and Colonel Sergei Muraviev-Apostol--all hoped to overturn the old order. Over the next six years, their revolutions ended in failure. The men who led them became martyrs. In The Four Horsemen, the late, eminent historian Richard Stites offers a compelling narrative history of these four revolutions. Stites sets the stories side by side, allowing him to compare events and movements and so illuminate such topics as the transfer of ideas and peoples across frontiers, the formation of an international community of revolutionaries, and the appropriation of Christian symbols and language for secular purposes. He shows how expressive behavior and artifacts of all kinds--art, popular festivities, propaganda, and religion--worked their way to various degrees into all the revolutionary movements and regimes. And he documents as well the corruption, abandonment of liberal values, and outright betrayal of the revolution that emerged in Spain and Naples; the clash of ambitions and ideas that wracked the unity of the Decembrists' cause; and civil war that erupted in the midst of the Greek struggle for independence. Richard Stites was one of the most imaginative and broad-ranging historians working in the United States. This book is his last work, a classic example of his dazzling knowledge and idiosyncratic yet accessible writing style. The culmination of an esteemed career, The Four Horsemen promises to enthrall anyone interested in nineteenth-century Europe and the history of revolutions"--

Informed by the burgeoning historiography of the 1990s, the text balances political and economic explorations of everyday life, social roles, cultural dynamics, and gender issues.
