Описание: This is to be a groundbreaking four-volume account of the collectivization of agriculture in the Soviet Union, based on newly available documents from the
archives of the Soviet State, the Communist Party, and the secret police. The collectivization of Soviet agriculture in the late 1920s and 1930s forever altered the country's social and
economic landscape. A massive social engineering project, collectivization became the first of a series of bloody landmarks that would come to characterise and define
In this revelatory book the most important primary Soviet documents dealing with the brutal economic and cultural subjugation of the Russian peasantry are
presented with analysis and commentary. Drawn from previously unavailable and in many cases unknown archives, these harrowing documents provide for the first time an unimpeded
view of the experience of the peasantry during the years 1927-1930. The book, the first of four in the series, covers the background of collectivization, its violent implementation, and
the mass peasant revolt that ensued.
The documents reveal how repression evolved as a basic tool of governance and how Stalinist policies toward the peasantry
developed and were opposed. For its insights into the horrific fate of the Russian peasantry and into Stalin's dictatorship, The War Against the Peasantry takes its place an as
unparalleled resource. "This volume - one of the most exciting in the Annals of Communism series - uncovers the Stalinist decision- and policy-making processes at work on momentous
new directions for the countryside.
A remarkable achievement!" Mark von Hagen, Columbia University

Описание: Lauded as a great Jew, excoriated by antisemites, and one of Britain s most renowned prime ministers, Benjamin Disraeli has been widely celebrated for his role in Jewish history. But is the perception of him as a Jewish hero accurate? In what ways did he contribute to Jewish causes? In this groundbreaking, lucid investigation of Disraeli s life and accomplishments, David Cesarani draws a new portrait of one of Europe s leading nineteenth-century statesmen, a complicated, driven, opportunistic man. While acknowledging that Disraeli never denied his Jewish lineage, boasted of Jewish achievements, and argued for Jewish civil rights while serving as MP, Cesarani challenges the assumption that Disraeli truly cared about Jewish issues. Instead, his driving personal ambition required him to confront his Jewishness at the same time as he acted opportunistically. By creating a myth of aristocratic Jewish origins for himself, and by arguing that Jews were a superior race, Disraeli boosted his own career but also contributed to the consolidation of some of the most fundamental stereotypes of modern antisemitism."
