Russian, Central Asian, and East European Studies

New & Recent Titles 2013



Dear Friends, The University of Pittsburgh Press is pleased to present its new and recent titles in Russian, Central Asian, and East European studies. This catalog represents our latest offerings in programs that for more than twenty years have been committed to publishing the best scholarship in the field. The origins of this effort can be traced to 1984, when Pittsburghs Russian and East European Studies series began. Since then REES has grown to include a wide array of distinguished books from a variety of disciplinary, ideological, and methodological perspectives on every aspect of the regions history, politics, society, economics, and culture. REES is under the general editorship of Jonathan Harris. Our Central Eurasia in Context series is under the general editorship of Douglas Northrop. This intriguing region has a rich historical legacy. Combining abundant natural resources and daunting terrain, alternately ignored and coveted by outside powers, this continental heartland is marked by many fault lines of historical and contemporary global conflict and plays a vital role in world politics. Yet for all its importance, Central Eurasia remains insufficiently explored by modern scholarship. This series addresses that need. We look forward to expanding and deepening our publishing efforts to bring you the best new scholarship on this important part of the world.

First Films of the Holocaust

Soviet Cinema and the Genocide of the Jews, 193846
Jeremy HICKS

First Films of the Holocaust tackles a little known but deeply important subjectSoviet filmmakers, who were the first ones to visualize the mass murder of Jews and others on the Eastern front, the event we now call the Holocaust. In this important book, Jeremy Hicks shows how the filmmakers documented their horrible subject and then how the Soviet government used this frightening footage to galvanize a population. A fusion of film analysis and history, this book will be a must-have for anyone interested in filmic representations of the Holocaust. David Shneer, University of Colorado

most early Western perceptions of the Holocaust were based on newsreels filmed during the allied liberation of Germany in 1945. Little, however, was reported of the initial wave of material from Soviet filmmakers who were in fact the first to document these horrors. In First Films of the Holocaust, Jeremy Hicks presents a pioneering study of Soviet contributions to the growing public awareness of the horrors of Nazi rule. even before the war, the Soviet film Professor Mamlock, which premiered in the United States in 1938 and coincided with the Kristallnacht pogrom, helped reinforce anti-Nazi sentiment. yet, Soviet films were often dismissed or even banned in the West as Communist propaganda. Hicks recovers much of the major film work in Soviet depictions of the Shoa and views them within their political context, both locally and internationally. Overwhelmingly, wartime films were skewed to depict Soviet resistance, red funerals, and calls for vengeance, rather than the singling out of Jewish victims by the Nazis. Almost no personal testimony of victims or synchronous sound was recorded, furthering the disconnection of the viewer to the victims. Hicks examines correspondence, scripts, reviews, and compares edited with unedited film, to unearth the deliberately hidden Jewish aspects of Soviet depictions of the German invasion and occupation. To Hicks, its in the silences, gaps, and ellipses that the films speak most clearly. Additionally, he details the reasons why Soviet Holocaust films have been subsequently erased from collective memory in the West and the Soviet Union: their graphic horror, their use as propaganda tools, and the postwar rise of the red Scare in the United States and anti-Semitic campaigns in the Soviet Union.

Fascination and Enmity
Russia and Germany as Entangled Histories, 19141945
edited by mICHAeL DAvID-FOx, PeTer HOLQUIST, and ALexANDer m. mArTIN


Rather than once again comparing the horrors of Nazism and Stalinism, this important new volume brings together contributions by major scholars engaged in interrogating the tangled relationship between Russia and Germany in the first part of the twentieth century. By focusing on the events surrounding the two world wars, the authors provide crucial insights into the manner in which Germans and Russians viewed each other and how such perceptions influenced their actions in what has been called the age of extremes. Omer Bartov, Brown University This volume, which collects pioneering work by outstanding historians of Russia and Germany, reveals the enormous promise of transnational history. Every chapter places significant events in a new light, enriching our understanding of perhaps the most crucial relationship of the twentieth century. Timothy Snyder, Yale University This innovative book splinters the ice in which the humanly wrenching dramas of twentieth-century German-Russian interactions have been locked: the fate of prisoners of war, ordinary soldiersand prominent intellectualsfeelings for their enemies and their own cause, the brutality of the Soviet occupation of defeated Germany. The politics of official propaganda and international communism also appear in a new light. These imaginative explorations of newly accessible sources push scholarships cutting edge forward. William W. Hagen, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Davis


russia and Germany have had a long history of significant cultural, political, and economic exchange. Despite these beneficial interactions, stereotypes of the alien Other persisted. Germans perceived russia as a vast frontier with unlimited potential, yet infused with an Asianness that explained its backwardness and despotic leadership. russians admired German advances in science, government, and philosophy, but saw their people as lifeless and obsessed with order. Fascination and Enmity presents an original transnational history of these two entangled nations during the critical era of the world wars. Through accounts of fellow travelers, POWs, war correspondents, soldiers on the front, propagandists, revolutionaries, the Comintern, and wartime and postwar occupations, the contributors reveal the psyche of the russian-German dynamic and its powerful influence over politics, the military, and ideology.

Swans of the Kremlin
Ballet and Power in Soviet Russia


In Swans of the Kremlin Christina Ezrahi reconstructs long-ago debates and makes us hearas though we were flies on the wallvoices arguing about what is or isnt Soviet and even the quality of Russian versus Czech tights. She views Soviet ballet as a dynamic enterprise negotiating the daily demands of a state cultural project and professional issues that often became an expression of political resistance. Lynn Garafola, Columbia University Ezrahis study addresses the basic questions surrounding the mysteries of the production of art in the Soviet Union: Who called the shots, and how did they do it? Her meticulous archival research finally answers questions regarding the autonomy of the artist and institution, with analyses that are thoughtful, provocative, and illuminating.

Classical ballet was perhaps the most visible symbol of aristocratic culture and its isolation from the rest of russian society under the tsars. In the wake of the October revolution, ballet, like all of the arts, fell under the auspices of the Soviet authorities, who attempted to mold the former imperial ballet to suit their revolutionary cultural agenda and reeducate the masses. As Christina ezrahis groundbreaking study reveals, they were far from successful in this ambitious effort to gain complete control over art. Swans of the Kremlin offers a fascinating glimpse at the collision of art and politics during the volatile first fifty years of the Soviet period. ezrahi shows how the producers and performers of russias two major troupes, the mariinsky (later Kirov) and the Bolshoi, quietly but effectively resisted Soviet cultural hegemony during this era. Despite all controls put on them, they managed to maintain the classical forms and traditions of their rich artistic past and to further develop their art form. These aesthetic and professional standards proved to be the power behind the ballets worldwide appeal. The troupes soon became the showpiece of Soviet cultural achievement, as they captivated Western audiences during the Cold War period. Based on extensive research into official archives, and personal interviews with artists and staff, ezrahi presents the first-ever account of the inner workings of these famed ballet troupes during the Soviet era. She follows their struggles in the postrevolutionary period, their peak during the golden age of the 1950s and 1960s, and concludes with their monumental productions staged to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the revolution in 1968.

The History of Liberalism in Russia
Victor LeontoVitsch Foreword by ALeksAndr soLzhenitsyn

An illuminating and profound analysis. . . . One of the most thoughtful and penetrating studies that have appeared in the field of Russian history in any country for some time. Donald Treadgold, American Historical Review The legend still persists that there was never any choice in Russia between dark reaction and red revolution, and that liberal order was an alien plant which could never have taken root. . . . Leontovitsch has done a great service by restoring some of the true perspective. Leonard Schapiro, Times Literary Supplement This book has that elegant quality of successful works that, while elucidating a specific subject, throw light in passing on other questions that are sometimes of greater significance. Thus, we find in this history of liberalism a profound analysis of some of the key factors that made revolution possible in Russia. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, from the Foreword

Speaking Soviet with an Accent presents the first english-language study of Soviet culture clubs in Kyrgyzstan. These clubs profoundly impacted the future of Kyrgyz cultural identity and fostered the work of many artists, such as famed novelist Chingiz Aitmatov. Based on extensive oral history and archival research, Ali men follows the rise of culture clubs beginning in the 1920s, when they were established to inculcate Soviet ideology and create a sedentary lifestyle among the historically nomadic Kyrgyz people. These red clubs are fondly remembered by locals as one of the few places where lively activities and socialization with other members of their ail (village or tribal unit) could be found. Through lectures, readings, books, plays, concerts, operas, visual arts, and cultural Olympiads, locals were exposed to Soviet notions of modernization. But these programs also encouraged the creation of a newfound Kyrgyzness that preserved aspects of local traditions and celebrated the achievements of Kyrgyz citizens in the building of a new state. These ideals proved appealing to many Kyrgyz, who, for centuries, had seen riches and power in the hands of a few tribal chieftains and russian imperialists. This book offers new insights into the formation of modern cultural identity in Central Asia. Here, like their imperial predecessors, the Soviets sought to extend their physical borders and political influence. But men also reveals the remarkable agency of the Kyrgyz people, who employed available resources to meld their own heritage with Soviet and russian ideologies and form artistic expressions that continue to influence Kyrgyzstan today.

Under Solomons Throne provides a rare ground-level analysis of post-Soviet Central Asias social and political paradoxes by focusing on an urban ethnic community: the Uzbeks in Osh, Kyrgyzstan, who have maintained visions of societal renewal throughout economic upheaval, political discrimination, and massive violence. morgan Liu illuminates many of the challenges facing Central Asia today by unpacking the predicament of Osh, a city whose experience captures key political and cultural issues of the region as a whole. Situated on the border of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, the city is subject to a Kyrgyz government, but the majority of its population are ethnic Uzbeks. Conflict between the two groups led to riots in 1990, and again in 2010, when thousands, mostly ethnic Uzbeks, were killed and nearly half a million more fled across the border into Uzbekistan. The first ethnographic monograph based on extensive local-language fieldwork in a Central Asian city, this study examines the culturally specific ways that Osh Uzbeks are making sense of their post-Soviet dilemmas. These practices reveal deep connections with Soviet and Islamic sensibilities and with everyday acts of dwelling in urban neighborhoods. Osh Uzbeks engage the spaces of their city to shape their orientations relative to the wider world, postsocialist transformations, Islamic piety, moral personhood, and effective leadership.

In the post-Soviet era, democracy has made little progress in Central Asia. Chaos, Violence, Dynasty presents a compelling explanation for this through a comparison of the divergent political courses taken by Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan in the wake of Soviet rule. While the Soviet legacy is crucial to understanding the varying outcomes in these countries, eric mcGlinchey also examines the economics, religion, politics, foreign investment, and ethnic composition of these nations for insights into their relative strengths and weaknesses today. Soviet rule and influence in the region was inconsistent. Thus, their manipulation of the politics of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan in the late 1980s solidified the role of local elites, while in Kyrgyzstan moscow looked away as leadership crumbled during the ethnic riots of 1990. Today, Kyrgyzstan is the poorest and most politically unstable country in the region, thanks to a small, corrupt, and fractured political elite. In Uzbekistan, Islam Karimov maintains power through the brutal suppression of disaffected muslims, who are nevertheless rising in numbers and influence. In Kazakhstan, a political machine fueled by oil wealth and patronage underlies the greatest economic equity in the region, and far less political violence. This timely study concludes with a call for a more realistic and flexible view of the authoritarian systems in the region, if there is to be any potential benefit from foreign engagement with the nations of Central Asia and similar political systems globally.

Because of their visibility in society and ability to shape public opinion, prominent literary figures were among the first targets of Communist repression, torture, and incarceration. Authors such as Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn famously documented the experience of internment in Soviet gulags. Little, however, has been published in the english language on the work of writers imprisoned by other countries of the Soviet bloc. For the first time, The Walls Behind the Curtain presents a collection of works from east european novelists, poets, playwrights, and essayists who wrote during or after their captivity under communism. Harold B. Segel paints a backdrop of the political culture and prison and labor camp systems of each country, detailing the onerous conditions that writers faced. He then offers biographical information on each writer and excerpts of their writing. Notable literary figures included are Vclav Havel, Eva Kantrkov, Milan imeka, Adam Michnik, Milovan Djilas, Paul Goma, Tibor Dry, Visar Zhiti, and many others. The writings are complemented by the work of the celebrated Albanian artist maks velo, himself a prisoner in a forced labor camp at Spa, with several illustrations included from the time of his internment.

The Workers State
Industrial Labor and the Making of Socialist Hungary, 19441958

Mark Pittaway makes a powerful argument for the necessity of studying industrial communities to understand the dynamics of early socialist state formation in Hungary. Pittaway takes full advantage of the rich archival materials he has carefully studied, giving us a nuanced sense of everyday life, as well as indicating how poor our conception of Hungarian industrial working class experience in the 1950s has been. Martha Lampland, University of California, San Diego In this imaginatively conceived and meticulously researched book, the late Mark Pittaway masterfully reconstructs the history of Hungarys working class in the early years of Communist rule. Fiercely committed to a history from below in all its messy complexity, Pittaway uncovers the strategies of negotiation, bargaining, and resistance with which Hungarian workers made a place for themselves in the newly created workers state. This is social history at its finest, theoretically sophisticated, lucidly argued, and provocative in its claims. It will be essential reading for all historians of East-Central Europe.

In 1956, Hungarian workers joined students on the streets to protest years of wage and benefit cuts enacted by the Communist regime. Although quickly suppressed by Soviet forces, the uprising led to changes in party leadership and conciliatory measures that would influence labor politics for the next thirty years. In The Workers State, mark Pittaway presents a groundbreaking study of the complexities of the Hungarian working class, its relationship to the Communist Party, and its major political role during the foundational period of socialism (1944 1958). Through case studies of three industrial centersjpest, Tatabnya, and Zala CountyPittaway analyzes the dynamics of gender, class, generation, skill level, and rural versus urban location to reveal the embedded hierarchies within Hungarian labor. He further demonstrates how industries themselves, from oil and mining to armaments and textiles, possessed their own unique labor subcultures. From the outset, the socialist state won favor with many workers, as they had grown weary of the disparity and oppression of class systems under fascism. By the early 1950s, however, a gap between the aspirations of labor and the goals of the state began to widen. In the Stalinist drive toward industrialization, stepped up production measures, shortages of goods and housing, wage and benefit cuts, and suppression became widespread. many histories of this period have focused on Communist terror tactics and the brutal suppression of a pliant population. In contrast, Pittaways social chronicle sheds new light on working-class structures and the determination of labor to pursue its own interests and affect change in the face of oppression. It also offers new understandings of the role of labor and the importance of local histories in eastern europe under communism.

The fascist Ustasha regime and its militias carried out a ruthless campaign of ethnic cleansing that killed an estimated half million Serbs, Jews, and Gypsies, and ended only with the defeat of the Axis powers in World War II. In Visions of Annihilation, rory yeomans analyzes the Ustasha movements use of culture to appeal to radical nationalist sentiments and legitimize its genocidal policies. He shows how the movement attempted to mobilize poets, novelists, filmmakers, visual artists, and intellectuals as purveyors of propaganda and visionaries of a utopian society. meanwhile, newspapers, radio, and speeches called for the expulsion, persecution, or elimination of alien and enemy populations to purify the nation. He describes how the dual concepts of annihilation and national regeneration were disseminated to the wider population and how they were interpreted at the grassroots level. yeomans examines the Ustasha movement in the context of other fascist movements in europe. He cites their similar appeals to idealistic youth, the economically disenfranchised, racial purists, social radicals, and Catholic clericalists. yeomans further demonstrates how fascism created rituals and practices that mimicked traditional religious faiths and celebrated martyrdom. Visions of Annihilation chronicles the foundations of the Ustasha movement, its key actors and ideologies, and reveals the unique cultural, historical, and political conditions present in interwar Croatia that led to the rise of fascism and contributed to the cataclysmic events that tore across the continent.

eastern european prefabricated housing blocks are often vilified as the visible manifestations of everything that was wrong with state socialism. For many inside and outside the region, the uniformity of these buildings became symbols of the dullness and drudgery of everyday life. Manufacturing a Socialist Modernity complicates this common perception. Analyzing the cultural, intellectual, and professional debates surrounding the construction of mass housing in early postwar Czechoslovakia, Kimberly elman zarecor shows that these housing blocks served an essential function in the planned economy and reflected an interwar aesthetic, derived from constructivism and functionalism, that carried forward into the 1950s. With a focus on prefabricated and standardized housing built from 1945 to 1960, zarecor offers broad and innovative insights into the countrys transition from capitalism to state socialism. She demonstrates that during this shift, architects and engineers consistently strove to meet the needs of Czechs and Slovaks despite challenging economic conditions, a lack of material resources, and manufacturing and technological limitations. In the process, architects were asked to put aside their individual creative aspirations and transform themselves into technicians and industrial producers.

The field of Russian, East European, and Central Asian studies is actively redefining itself in response to the dramatic transformations of the post-Soviet period and the realities of an increasingly interconnected world. To encourage fresh perspectives by emerging scholars of this dynamic region, Northwestern, Pittsburgh, and Wisconsin university presses are launching a joint publishing initiative supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Northwestern University Press

Northwestern seeks studies of Slavic literature, art, and culture. Pittsburgh is looking for projects in the social, political, environmental, urban, and cultural history of the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. Wisconsin is especially interested in cultural and intellectual history, literary and film studies, anthropology, and human rights, with a focus on Russia and Eastern Europe.
