Rezensionen
'This intriguing interdisciplinary study of the Stalin years deserves to be read widely.' - The Russian Review

'In all, then, this lively and intelligent study adds to the growing literature that documents the interactions between leadership and creative intelligentsia in the shaping of Stalinist dictatorship. It will prove useful to anyone interested in Stalinism, history-writing, or the arts and literature of the Soviet era.' - Catherine Merridale, Department of Historical Studies, University of Bristol, Seer
