The biopolitics of Stalinism : ideology and life in Soviet socialism
Prozorov, Sergei
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press Ltd, [2016]
Postcommunist Stalinism : the resurrection of the effective manager -- Stalinism in the theory of biopolitics : a brief genealogy of a reticence -- The great break : making socialism real -- High Stalinism : retreat, simulacrum, terror -- Deathly life : the subject of Stalinism -- Shalamov, or the negative experience -- A real renewal of life : towards an affirmative biopolitics.

"In contrast to Western rationalities of biopolitics, Soviet biopolitics was oriented less towards protecting life than towards transforming it in accordance with the communist ideal. In this book, Sergei Prozorov traces the emergence of the Soviet biopolitical project during the period of the Great Break (1928-32) and its subsequent modifications during High Stalinism. He then relocates the question of biopolitics down to the level of the subject, tracing the way the 'new Soviet person' was to be produced in governmental practices and the role violence and terror played in this construction."--Page 4 of cover.

"Conquest, annexation, secession by force--these belong to a statecraft which great powers after World War II seemed to have set aside for good. Russia in 2014 however brought them back. Aggression against Ukraine examines the stakes in Crimea, Donetsk, Luhansk and other troubled borderlands--and for international law and public order as a whole"--

"A revealing look into the lives of ordinary Russians. More than twenty years ago, the longtime NPR correspondent Anne GMore than twenty years ago, the longtime NPR correspondent Anne Garrels began to visit the region of Chelyabinsk, an aging military-industrial center a thousand miles east of Moscow that is home to the Russian nuclear program. Her goal was to chart the social and political aftershocks of the USSR's collapse. On her trips to an area once closed to the West, Garrels discovered a populace for whom the new democratic freedoms were as traumatic as they were delightful. The region suffered a severe economic crisis in the early 1990s, and the next twenty years would only bring more turmoil as well as a growing identity crisis and antagonism toward foreigners. The city of Chelyabinsk became richer and more cosmopolitan, even as corruption and intolerance grew more entrenched. In Putin Country, Garrels crafts a necessary portrait of the nation's heartland. We meet upwardly mobile professionals, impassioned activists, and ostentatious mafiosi. We discover surprising subcultures, such as a vibrant underground gay community and a group of determined evangelicals. And we watch doctors and teachers try to cope with a corrupt system. Drawing on these encounters, Garrels explains why Vladimir Putin commands the loyalty of so many Russians, even those who decry the abuses of power they encounter from day to day. Her portrait of Russia's silent majority is both essential and engaging reading at a time when Cold War tensions are resurgent"--Publisher's online catalog.
