Nikolai Charushin's memoirs of his experience as a member of the revolutionary populist movement in Russia are familiar to historians, but A Generation of Revolutionaries provides a broader and more engaging look at the lives and relationships beyond these memoirs. It shows how, after years of incarceration, Charushin and friends thrived in Siberian exile, raising children and contributing to science and culture there. While Charushin's memoirs end with his return to european Russia, this sweeping biography follows this group as they engaged in Russia fin de siecle society, took part in the Russian revolution, and struggled in its aftermath. A Generation of Revolutionaries provides vibrant and deeply personal insights into the turbulent history of Russia from the Great Reforms to the era of Stalinism and beyond. In doing so, it tells the story of a remarkable circle of friends whose lives balanced love, family, and career with exile, imprisonment, and revolution.
Seasoned Socialism reflects on select Soviet everyday practices, their significance for those who wrote about them or performed them, and their impact on the meaning and quality of life in the former USSR. For the first time in the scholarship about late Soviet everyday life, all everyday practices chosen for this volume gravitate to food and foodways. As essential to Soviet everyday life as food is the notion of gender, which was largely the factor upon which most everyday Soviet experiences and practices are predicated. Seasoned Socialism, therefore, engages Soviet men and women where they eat—in the kitchen, the garden, the grocery, the marketplace and the dining establishment.
