In the 1930s many Western intellectuals looked with hope and admiration at the great "Soviet experiment", the planned transformation of the economy that was supposed to lay the foundation for the world's first socialist society. Later, with the onset of the Cold War, the image of the "Evil Empire" predominated in the mind of Westerners. Yet what was it really like to be a citizen of Soviet Russia during this period? This text presents a history of everyday life in Soviet Russia. Rather than consider the history of the period from the perspective of the Soviet Party and its leaders, Sheila Fitzpatrick considers what life was like for ordinary people. It shows the ways of life, behaviours, and skills developed by citizens in order to cope with the extraordinary social and political change that Stalinism brought, ranging from scarcity of consumer goods, to the condemnation of religion, to bureaucratic red tape and state regulation of education, jobs, and career advancement.About the Author:
Sheila Fitzpatrick teaches modern Russian History at the University of Chicago. A former President of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies, and a co-editor of The Journal of Modern History, she is also the author of Stalin's Peasants, The Russian Revolution, and many other books and articles about Russia.

Summary: Here is a pioneering account of everyday life under Stalin, written by a leading authority on modern Russian history. Focusing on the urban population, Fitzpatrick shows how living conditions and day-to-day practices changed dramatically with "Stalin's Revolution" at the beginning of the 1930s.It was a world of privation, overcrowding, endless lines, and broken homes, in which the regime's promises of future socialist abundance rang hollowly. We read of a government bureaucracy that often turned life into a nightmare, and of the ways ordinary citizens tried to circumvent it. We also read of the secret police, whose constant surveillance was endemic to this society, and the waves of terror, like the Great Purges of 1937, which periodically cast this society into turmoil. Drawing on extensive research in Soviet archives only recently opened to historians, Everyday Stalinism is a true and compelling story about ordinary people trying to live normal lives under extraordinary circumstances.
