Book Description

Material Culture in Russia and the USSR (PDF) comprises some of the most cutting-edge scholarships across history; anthropology; and material and cultural studies relating to Russia and the Soviet Union; from Peter the Great to Vladimir Putin.

Material culture in Russia and the USSR holds a particularly important role; as the distinction between private and public spheres has at times developed in radically different ways than in many places in the more commonly studied West. With case studies covering fashion; alcohol; advertising; cinema; and photography among other topics; this wide-ranging collection offers an unparalleled survey of material culture in Russia and the USSR and addresses core questions such as: what makes Russian and Soviet material culture distinctive; what values it portrays; who produces it; and how it relates to ‘high culture’ and consumer culture.

 

Reviews

 

 

Material Culture in Russia and the USSR: Things; Values; Identities is a welcome addition to what is still an underrepresented field; studies of the material culture of Eastern Europe.” ― H-Net

In his introduction to Material Culture in Russia and the USSR; Graham Roberts not only offers a solid definition of what constitutes material culture but also argues that the 11 articles in this collection bridge the gap between Slavic and material culture studies.” ― Canadian Slavonic Papers

The ebook is an important contribution to the field; and its strongest chapters contextualize material culture in Russia and the USSR by placing it in a global and transnational perspective; allowing us to identify the particular meanings of objects in a Soviet and Russian setting while linking these objects to worldwide patterns of consumption and exchange.” ― The Russian Review
