Description

David-Fox has produced a deeply researched and original book that invites readers to rethink or revisit some big historiographical questions: continuity and change across the dividing line of 1917, the nature and origins of Stalinism, and the connection between internal and external factors in national development. Of obvious interest to historians of modern Russia, this book will also be read with great benefit by scholars interested in cultural, political, and transnational history.
