Warped mourning : stories of the undead in the land of the unburied by Aleksandr Ėtkind( )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2020 in English and Russian and held by 1,407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After Stalin's death, the Soviet Union dismantled its enormous system of terror and torture. Sixty years later, Russia remains the land of the unburied. Memorials to the victems of the gulag are inadequate, and their families have received no significant compensation. In contrast to the Nazis, who created a clear boundary between victims and perpetrators, the Soviet regime terrorized people arbitrarily. Its agents and targets were blurred, and perpetrators themselves often became victims. Though the scale of terror was comparable in Russia and Germany, their memorial cultures could not be more different. This book's premise is that late Soviet and post-Soviet culture, haunted by its past, has produced a unique set of memorial practices. Combining memory studies, psychoanalysis, and critical theory, Etkind shows how post-Soviet Russia has turned the painful process of mastering the past into an important part of its political present. From the Thaw of the 1950s through the protest movement of the 2010s, Russia's incomplete mourning for its millions of Soviet-era victims helps us understand its ongoing drama."--Back cover
Roads not taken : an intellectual biography of William C. Bullitt by Aleksandr Ėtkind( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Christian Bullitt (1891-1967) was the most cosmopolitan U.S. diplomat of his time. Voted most brilliant in his class at Yale, he wrote novels, plays, essays, and coauthored a controversial biography of President Wilson with Sigmund Freud. A political visionary, his views were often contentious, although he was often proven right by the unfolding of events. Bullitt served the United States through two World Wars and foresaw the collapse of old regimes while becoming a sympathetic expert on both European and Russian socialism. He was a member of the American delegation to the Paris Peace Conference (1918), the first U.S. Ambassador to the Soviet Union (1933-1936), and Roosevelt's Ambassador to France (1936-1940). A friend of the Russian people and an early proponent of friendly relations with the new Soviet government under Lenin, his later experience as ambassador to Moscow led him to be among the first to warn of Stalin's aggressive intentions toward the West. Bullitt worked tirelessly to preserve European democracy until policy disagreements with his friend Franklin Roosevelt eventually sidelined him politically. While his famous disciples, George Kennan and Charles Bohlen, led American diplomacy toward the USSR in the emerging Cold War, Bullitt became an early advocate of European unity. This multi-faceted biography sheds new light on the fascinating, deeply intellectual life of an important political figure who counted Lenin, Roosevelt, Chiang-Kai-Shek, Charles de Gaulle, and Sigmund Freud among his personal relationships in a life profoundly connected to the history of the twentieth century

Remembering Katyn by Aleksandr Ėtkind( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katyn--the Soviet massacre of over 21,000 Polish prisoners in 1940--has come to be remembered as Stalin's emblematic mass murder, an event obscured by one of the most extensive cover-ups in history. Yet paradoxically, a majority of its victims perished far from the forest in western Russia that gives the tragedy its name
Memory and theory in Eastern Europe( Book )

14 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the last decades of the twentieth century, a 'memory boom' took place in Western Europe and North America. It is the aim of this volume to investigate how academic practices of Memory Studies are being applied, adapted, and transformed in the countries of East-Central Europe and the former Soviet Union. Importing the 'memory boom' into a new cultural context without interrogating the paradigm itself is of course impossible, and this has been the starting point for the current volume. While for scholars of Eastern Europe the volume will be interesting for the specifics discussed in each chapter, for scholars in Memory Studies it affords a new, startlingly different perspective on a paradigm that has become canonical and crystallized"--

Cultural forms of protest in Russia by Birgit Beumers( )

11 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scope and content: "Alongside the Arab Spring, the 'Occupy' anti-capitalist movements in the West, and the events on the Maidan in Kiev, Russia has had its own protest movements, notably the political protests of 2011-12. As elsewhere in the world, these protests had unlikely origins, in Russia's case spearheaded by the 'creative class'. This book examines the protest movements in Russia. It discusses the artistic traditions from which the movements arose; explores the media, including the internet, film, novels, and fashion, through which the protesters have expressed themselves; and considers the outcome of the movements, including the new forms of nationalism, intellectualism, and feminism put forward. Overall, the book shows how the Russian protest movements have suggested new directions for Russian - and global - politics. "--Provided by publisher

Development and dystopia : studies in post-Soviet Ukraine and Eastern Europe by Mikhail Minakov( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book dissects-from both philosophical and empirical viewpoints-the peculiar developmental challenges, geopolitical contexts, and dystopic stalemates that post-Soviet societies face during their transition to new political and cultural orders. The principal geographical focus of the essays is Ukraine, but most of the assembled texts are also relevant and/or refer to other post-Soviet countries. Mikhail Minakov describes how former Soviet nations are trying to reinvent, for their particular circumstances, democracy and capitalism while concurrently dealing with new poverty and inequality, facing unusual degrees of freedom and responsibility for their own future, coming to terms with complicated collective memories and individual pasts. Finally, the book puts forward novel perspectives on how Western and post-communist Europe may be able to create a sustainable pan-European common space. These include a new agenda for pan-European political communication, new East-Central European regional security mechanisms, a solution for the chain of separatist-controlled populations, and anti-patronalist institutions in East European countries. --
