My Six Years with Gorbachev

by: Anatoly C. Chernyaev

Drawing on his own diary as well as secret documents and transcripts of high-level meetings, Anatoly Chernyaev recounts the drama that swept the Soviet Union between 1985 and 1991. As Gorbachev’s chief foreign policy aide for most of that period, he played a central role in efforts to halt the arms race, discard a confrontational ideology, and open his country to the world. And as Gorbachev’s confidant on many domestic issues as well, Chernyaev offers rare insights into the struggle over glasnost, the growth of separatism, and the rise of Boris Yeltsin.

Glasnost_Soviet Cinema Responds

by: Nicholas Galichenko

With the coming of glasnost to the Soviet Union, filmmakers began to explore previously forbidden themes, and distributors released films that were suppressed by pre-glasnost-era censors. Soviet cinema underwent a revolution, one that mirrors and helps interpret the social revolution that took place throughout the USSR. Glasnost—Soviet Cinema Responds is the first overall survey of the effects of this revolution on the work of Soviet filmmakers and their films.

The book is structured as a series of three essays and a filmography of the directors of glasnost cinema.

Stalin: The Glasnost Revelations

by: Walter Laqueur
This is a remarkable reconsideration of Josef Stalin, the demonic dictator who ruled over the Soviet Union for the better part of three decades. Until his death in 1953, the Russians had it drummed into them that they owed everything to 'the wise and strong boss (khoziain) who was omniscient and never mistaken,' and that without his leadership they would have been lost, 'easy prey to the capitalist wolves.' Yet less than three years after Stalin's death, Khrushchev spoke for the first time of 'Stalin's crimes'; at the Twenty-second Party Congress in 1961, there were further revelations.

Women in Russian Literature After Glasnost: Female Alternatives

by: Carol Adlam
The Russian literary world was shaken by the wide-reaching reforms of the late Soviet period (1985-91) and the Soviet Union's subsequent collapse. During this time the phenomenon of 'alternative' literature emerged, characterised by an emphasis on thematic, structural, and linguistic transgression of both Soviet-era values and the enduring Russian tradition of civic engagement and moral edification through literature. Through close textual analysis, Adlam examines the relationship of this literary phenomenon to issues of gender and creative authority, providing detailed discussion of several of the most significant women writers of the period, among them Valeriia Narbikova, Liudmila Petrushevskaia and Nina Sadur.
