About the Author

Evgeny Dobrenko is professor of Russian studies at the University of Sheffield.

Reviews

"Late Stalinism is both unsettling and hard to ignore. Dobrenko argues that Stalin's all-encompassing ethnic Russianness rooted deeply in everything from literature and philosophy to film, linguistics, and even biology; that it redefined national identity in the Soviet era and has now germinated anew in Putin's Russia. This book promises to stimulate debate about the country's past, present, and future."--Jeffrey Brooks, Johns Hopkins University, author of The Firebird and the Fox: Russian Culture under Tsars and Bolsheviks
"Dobrenko has produced a magisterial study of Soviet culture in the 1940s, to him the most truly Stalinist period. This is a much more sophisticated and original interpretation of the decade than we have seen to date, and it will be essential reading for all those interested in Soviet history and culture."--Katerina Clark, Yale University
