Stalin’s Constitution (Open Access): Soviet Participatory Politics and the Discussion of the 1936 Draft Constitution (Routledge Studies in Modern European History)

by Samantha Lomb

Upon its adoption in December 1936, Soviet leaders hailed the new so-called Stalin Constitution as the most democratic in the world. Scholars have long scoffed at this claim, noting that the mass repression of 1937–1938 that followed rendered it a hollow document. This study does not address these competing claims, but rather focuses on the six-month long popular discussion of the draft Constitution, which preceded its formal adoption in December 1936. Drawing on rich archival sources, this book uses the discussion of the draft 1936 Constitution to examine discourse between the central state leadership and citizens about the new Soviet social contract, which delineated the roles the state and citizens should play in developing socialism. For the central leadership, mobilizing its citizen...

The Cursed Day: Eyewitness Accounts of the Nazi Massacres during Operation Kalavryta

by Antonis Kakoyannis

In December 1943, after months battling resistance fighters, Nazi units marched through the mountains of the Greek Peloponnese, conducting reprisals against Greek civilians. The operation reached its brutal conclusion with the massacre of 438 civilian men and boys in Kalavryta. On that cursed day in December, Kalavryta became one of the martyr towns of World War II. As the years passed, the need to record eyewitness accounts became increasingly urgent. Driven by the need to document the true stories, the author interviewed over seventy people who lived through those tumultuous times. The author himself witnessed much of this conflict firsthand as a teenager living in the region. He now brings these events to life through the personal narratives of his own family and other townspeople and v...

The Oldest Vocation: Christian Motherhood in the Medieval West

by Clarissa W. Atkinson

According to an old story, a woman concealed her sex and ruled as pope for a few years in the ninth century. Pope Joan was not betrayed by a lover or discovered by an enemy; her downfall came when she went into labor during a papal procession through the streets of Rome. From the myth of Joan to the experiences of saints, nuns, and ordinary women, The Oldest Vocation brings to life both the richness and the troubling contradictions of Christian motherhood in medieval Europe.After tracing the roots of medieval ideologies of motherhood in early Christianity, Clarissa W. Atkinson reconstructs the physiological assumptions underlying medieval notions about women's bodies and reproduction; inherited from Greek science and popularized through the practice of midwifery, these assumptions helped s...

A Time to Live – this is the title of the final, sixth book of the novel Russian cross. The original novel was conceived as a five-volume edition, and with characters I planned to leave at the turn of the century. But too much remained uncertain in the fate of each character and the internal logic of the narration required to bring the line of characters’ lives before the moment of awareness of each of them of its purpose.No, they do not achieve complete peace and well-being. Life continues to bring them new difficulties that require overcoming, but each of the main characters of the novel in the final comes to understand the need to be here and now, in this place, to do this business, with these people, to love exactly this person and raise common children.And then, despite the diffic...

Drinking in Victorian and Edwardian Britain: Beyond the Spectre of the Drunkard

by Thora Hands

This open access book surveys drinking in Britain between the Licensing Act of 1869 and the wartime regulations imposed on alcohol production and consumption after 1914. This was a period marked by the expansion of the drink industry and by increasingly restrictive licensing laws. Politics and commerce co-existed with moral and medical concerns about drunkenness and combined, these factors pushed alcohol consumers into the public spotlight. Through an analysis of public and private records, medical texts and sociological studies, the book investigates the reasons why Victorians and Edwardians consumed alcohol in the ways that they did and explores the ideas about alcohol that circulated in the period.  This book shows that they had many reasons for purchasing and consuming alcoholic subst...
