Summary
  • Covering topics such as the Soviet monopoly over information and communication, violence in the gulags, and gender relations after World War II, this festschrift volume highlights the work and legacy of Sheila Fitzpatrick offers a cross-section of some of the best work being done on a critical period of Russia and the Soviet Union
  • This book weaves together elements of biography, historiography, and historical writing to explore the writings and legacy of Sheila Fitzpatrick, the University of Chicago's eminent scholar of Soviet history. It begins with essays that examine Fitzpatrick's contribution to her field and concludes with reminiscences about her life and career so far written by friends, family members, colleagues, and students. The heart of the book is a collection of original articles written by some of Fitzpatrick's students. These articles address subjects ranging from Kazakh resettlement under Stalin to the self-fashioning of scientists under Khrushchev, from state practices of terror to cultural and gender politics, showcasing both diverse and shared elements in the work of this scholar's protégés"--Provided by publisher
