Description: This memoir of an American woman’s life in Moscow traces the social and cultural evolution of Russia from the era of Krushchev to the era of Putin. In the mid-1960s, Naomi Collins was a graduate student at Moscow State University. As the 21st century began, she was the wife of the American Ambassador to Russia. In this insightful memoir, she shares her reflections and impressions of life as an American woman living in the Russian capital over the course of four decades. Rather than retracing the economic and political events of the period, Collins focuses her narrative on daily as it changed over the years. She offers fascinating anecdotal snapshots that reveal rare insight into the evolving state of the nation. “This book is like a script for a documentary spanning four decades when an especially astute and literate observer watched Russia emerge from stagnation and enter a period of dramatic economic, social, and political change and, on many fronts, upheaval.” —Strobe Talbott, President of the Brookings Institution

Description: Dark Days for White Knights is the story of one Veteran's loss of innocence and his sojourn down a lonely corridor...a chronicle of his quest to recover something of what he lost in Vietnam. Combat veterans of every war and from every nation have been scarred by the atrocities of war. However, because of the rotation system implemented during the Vietnam War, the veterans of Vietnam straggled home, one by one, to be scattered across an increasingly hostile America. America seemed as foreign as Vietnam had once been, but these were no longer the boys who had dreamed of serving America. The dreams of many had died in the soul-sucking mud of fetid rice paddies. There are many novels about Vietnam, most of which highlight heroic actions in combat. Heroes are a part of all wars and their stories are exciting and important. Vietnam was no exception. The devotion the warriors shared for one another spawned many heroic actions...but perhaps the important lessons from Vietnam were about personal responsibility, misplaced trust and the ultimate cost of survival. In that light...Dark Days for White Knights is a unique perspective on a still controversial time in American history.

Description: Few countries have been transformed as rapidly and dramatically as Russia since the end of the Communist regime. Yet the more that certain things change in Russia, the more others remain the same. The result is a political and social system of which almost every aspect is a work in progress, marked by sudden accelerations, slowdowns, turnarounds, and conundrums. This lively and innovative third edition provides a clear and comprehensive picture of Russian politics which does full justice to its changes, challenges, and paradoxes. A distinctive feature throughout is its emphasis on outlining basic facts and developments and setting these in historical contexts before moving on to critical analysis. This is the ideal text for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students studying Russian politics or comparative government and politics more broadly. New to this Edition: - Fully updated to cover the latest developments, including 2018's presidential election - Two chapters offering expanded coverage of foreign policy, which better balances coverage of domestic and international affairs - New content on elections, presidential power, constitutional amendments, events in Ukraine, political opposition, economic and business policies, domestic and global challenges facing Russia, and Russia's vision of the world - Accompanied by a revamped set of online resources, such as multiple-choice questions and PowerPoint slides

Description: Essays and photos that reveal and reflect on everyday life in socialist Yugoslavia, from tourism to television. Research about socialism and communism tends to focus on official aspects of power and dissent and on state politics, and presuppose a powerful state and a party with its official ideology on one side and repressed, manipulated, or collaborating citizens on the other side. This collection of essays instead helps uncover various aspects of everyday life during the time of socialism in Yugoslavia, such as leisure, popular culture, consumption, sociability and power, from 1945 until 1980, when Tito died. “A highly original project, which will cover a much neglected area, helping those who either did not make it to Yugoslavia in Tito’s time or were born too late to understand what life then and there was all about.” —Sabrina P. Ramet, Professor of Political Science at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway “This collection represents an original and highly useful work that helps fill a gap in the existing literature on socialist Yugoslavia and East-Central Europe in the Cold War. It also makes an important contribution to cultural history of the region in the second half of the twentieth century.” —Dejan Djokic, Lecturer in Serbian and Croatian Studies, The University of Nottingham “This book focuses on a cultural and social history of socialist Yugoslavia from the perspective of ‘ordinary’ people and by reconstructing their memories. The contributors, many of them belonging to a new generation of scholars from the former Yugoslavia, employ new approaches in order to make sense of the complicated past of this country.” —Ulf Brunnbauer, Department of History, Freie Universität Berlin

Description: An unusual Russian police detective must stop a plot to kill the tsar in this historical thriller. Eccentric and fiercely independent Inspector Vasiliev exposes a conspiracy by a high-ranking nobleman and a top official in the secret police to assassinate the tsar in late imperial Russia. He finds unexpected help from Irina, a member of the revolutionary underground, with whom he falls in love . . . "Unique among books about Russia written by western authors: being extremely rich in details it contains no factual errors at all.” —Alexei Miller, Senior Researcher in the Institute of Scientific Information in Humanities of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow “In this masterful thriller, [G.K. George] meets us at the crossroads of history and literature. He deftly portrays the tensions and dynamics of life in Imperial Russia on the eve of the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881, an event that set the stage for the Russian Revolution. In the process, the author creates unforgettable characters such as Inspector Vasili Vasiliev, the Swan, and the Magician.” —Ben Eklof, Professor of History, Indiana University “A true thriller, with all the delightful trimmings of a masterful historical narrative. Alfred Rieber (alias, G.K. George) lures you into the turbulent, terrorist times of Russia in the 1880s, from glittering balls in noble palaces to mystical forests in the foothills of the Ural Mountains. Erotic rituals of a religious sect called the Jumpers come frighteningly alive in this compelling narrative that is ethnographically and historically rich with plausible detail.” —Marjorie Mandelstam Balzer, Research Professor at the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies and in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Georgetown University “With his unsurpassed knowledge of Russian history, [G.K. George] brings the terrorist crisis of the late 1870s and early 1880s to life in this exciting historical thriller. To Kill a Tsar traces the conspiracy that led to the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in a plot filled with surprising twists and dramatic encounters between ardent young radicals and their adversaries from the security police. Along with compelling portraits of such real-life historical figures as the ill-fated Tsar, Rieber has created a complex and appealing hero, Inspector Vasiliev. Guided by the inspector, a master of disguise, and his faithful peasant sergeant, readers meet aristocrats and beggars and travel from high society salons to the slum hideouts of thieves and revolutionaries. . . . I recommend To Kill a Tsar to all readers who love action, intrigue, and vivid characters.” —Adele Lindenmeyr, Professor of History, Villanova University

Description: Two Russian police detectives work hard to solve a daunting murder case in this historical thriller set during the Kiev pogrom of 1881. This is the sequel to To Kill a Tsar. Another thrilling adventure of eccentric Inspector Vasiliev, who this time takes the readers to Kiev, a city gripped in the horror of the 1881 pogroms against the Jews. “In this second, marvelous installment of their adventures, Alfred Rieber takes the remarkable Russian detective duo of Vasiliev and Serov to Kiev, a city gripped in the horror of the 1881 pogroms against the Jews. There they struggle to solve a murder that is shrouded in the fog of ethnic violence, government corruption, terrorist plots of revolutionaries, and the strivings of Polish and Ukrainian nationalists. In glorious, vibrant detail, Rieber brings to life the world of Kiev: from its distinctive neighborhoods to the outlying Jewish shtetls, from the fancy balls of the high officials to the sweaty taverns of smugglers, from the bucolic escapes of city parks to the bustling, hardscrabble world of Russia’s burgeoning industrialization and railway building. This is historical fiction at its best.” —Nicholas Breyfogle, Associate Professor of History, The Ohio State University “In The Kiev Killings, Alfred Rieber intermingles multiple subcultures, from ex-convicts embittered by Siberian exile to Jewish radicals avenging pogrom victims to officials eager only for gain and glory. The city of Kiev in 1881, populated by these types and many more, comes alive in this book with remarkable detail and density. Rieber’s skillful plotting keeps us in suspense as we follow Inspector Vasiliev following leads that take him to unexpected corners of a cultural crossroads tense with upheaval.” —Carol Avins, Associate Professor, Department of Germanic, Russian and East European Languages and Literatures, Rutgers University “The Kiev Killings, which deals with the “Pogrom Year” of 1881, is a great thriller, a real page turner written with zest and panache. Its many and diverse characters engage the readers’ interest because they are three-dimensional human beings, trying (some of them, at least) to do the right thing in impossible circumstances. Moreover, the novel is informed by the author’s profound knowledge of the historical context in which the events of 1881 take place—the failed policies of the declining imperial regime, the tragic position of the Jews (here recounted with great empathy and insight), and the conflicting claims of Russians, Jews, and Ukrainians to one of Russia’s greatest Imperial centers in a period of economic growth and bitter internal strife.” —Ezra Mendelsohn, Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Contemporary Jewry and in Russian and East European Studies, Hebrew University

Description: Based on an extensive reading of a broad range of women’s accounts of their lives in the Soviet Union, this book focuses on many hidden aspects of Soviet women’s everyday lives, thereby revealing a great deal about how the Soviet Union operated on a day-to-day basis and about the place of the individual within it. Including testimony from both celebrated literary and cultural figures and from many ordinary people, and from both enthusiastic supporters of the regime and dissidents, the book considers women’s daily routines, attitudes and behaviours. It highlights some of the hidden inequalities of an ostensibly egalitarian society, and considers many wider questions, including how extensive was the ‘reach’ of the Soviet regime; how ‘modern’ was it; how far were there continuities after 1917 between the new Bolshevik regime and Russia’s imperial past; and how homogenous and how mobile was Soviet society?

Description: From the beloved author of Comeback Love and Wherever There Is Light, comes “a sweeping tale full of humor and heartbreak” (Karin Tanabe, author of The Diplomat’s Daughter) about the life-changing journey of a young man who travels from New Jersey to Khrushchev’s Russia and the beaches of Southern France to discover long-hidden secrets about his heritage. In 1950s New Jersey, teacher Michael Daniels—or Misha Danielov to his doting Russian-Jewish grandmother—is at loose ends, until he becomes the host of a nightly underground radio show. Not only does the show become a local hit because of his running satires of USSR leader Nikita Khrushchev, but half a world away, it picks up listeners in a small Soviet city. There, with rock and roll leaking in through bootlegged airwaves, Yulianna Kosoy—a war orphan in her mid-twenties—is sneaking American goods into the country with her boss, Der Schmuggler. But just as Michael’s radio show is taking off, his grandmother is murdered. Why would anyone commit such an atrocity against such a warm, affable woman? She had always been secretive about her past and, as Michael discovers, guarded a shadowy ancestral history. In order to solve the mystery of who killed her, Michael sets out for Europe to learn where he—and his grandmother—really came from. “Both heartbreaking and mesmerizing, Nothing Is Forgotten is the sort of book you won’t soon forget…Cold War Europe, lingering Nazi secrets, and the tragic history faced by millions of families not only bring this tale to life but will keep you turning the pages” (Lisa Wingate, New York Times bestselling author) and will appeal to fans of novels by Anita Diamant and Kristin Hannah.

Description: Inspector Vasiliev’s latest case takes him on a rescue mission to Siberia in this historical thriller by the author of Kiev Killings and To Kill a Tsar. Siberian Secrets is the final volume in a trilogy of historical fiction that follows the investigations of Inspector Vasiliev and Sergeant Serov of the Moscow police into the plots to assassinate Alexander II, the pogroms in Kiev, and the Siberian exile system. “Expertly mixes history and mystery with a potent dash of suspense to transport the reader to places and themes previously unexplored in English-language fiction. Complex issues of authenticity and affection, deep-lying injustice, and steadfastness in the face of adversity, intertwine to produce a gripping narrative whose outcome can never be predicted until at long last it arrives, a satisfyingly rich resolution.” —Gerald Smith, Emeritus Professor of Russian, Oxford University; Emeritus Fellow of New College, Oxford; and Fellow of the British Academy “This wonderful novel about a fascinating historical rescue set in Siberia makes for amazing, fast-paced reading-a dramatic story told with great flare.” —Marjorie Mandelstam Balzer, Research Professor, Department of Anthropology and the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies at Georgetown University

Description: A vivid and enlightening oral account of homelessness in the Las Vegas storm drains and the hard work of re-entering mainstream society. Are you aware that hundreds of people live underground in the flood channels of Las Vegas? Few people were until Matthew O'Brien grabbed a flashlight, tape recorder, and expandable baton for protection and explored the storm-drain system in depth. This research resulted in his landmark book Beneath the Neon. Now the drains have been covered by CNN, Fox News, NPR, Dr. Phil, the New York Times, the BBC, Al Jazeera, and many other media outlets. They have even found their way on to popular TV shows, including CSI, Criminal Minds, and into mainstream movies. But the fact that several of these drug- and gambling-addicted tunnel dwellers have clawed their way out of the drains and turned around their lives has received far less attention. Dark Days, Bright Nights shares their harrowing stories and provides a unique perspective on one of America's most fascinating cities. It also paints a larger picture of homelessness and recovery in America. These stories are the happy (though not Hollywood) ending to the infamous tunnel tale. The narrative is complemented by bios and stark, black-and-white images of the survivors, putting a scarred, knowing face to the unblinkingly honest accounts.

Description: Somalia. March 4, 1993. Two Somalis are shot in the back by Canadian peacekeepers, one fatally. Barely two weeks later, sixteen-year-old Shidane Abukar Arone is tortured to death. Dozens of Canadian soldiers look on or know of the torture. The first reports of what became known in Canada as the Somalia Affair challenged national claims to a special expertise in peacekeeping and to a society free of racism. Today, however, despite a national inquiry into the deployment of troops to Somalia, what most Canadians are likely to associate with peacekeeping is the nation's glorious role as peacekeeper to the world. Moments of peacekeeping violence are attributed to a few bad apples, bad generals, and a rogue regiment. In Dark Threats and White Knights, Sherene H. Razack explores the racism implicit in the Somalia Affair and what it has to do with modern peacekeeping. Examining the records of military trials and the public inquiry, Razack weaves together two threads: that of the violence itself and what would drive men to commit such atrocities, and secondly, the ways in which peacekeeping violence is largely forgiven and ultimately forgotten. Race disappears from public memory and what is installed in its place is a story about an innocent, morally superior middle-power nation obliged to discipline and sort out barbaric third world nations. Modern peacekeeping, Razack concludes, maintains a colour line between a family of white nations constructed as civilized and a third world constructed as a dark threat, a world in which violence is not only condoned but seen as necessary.

Johan accompanies her, allowing him to work on the oil concession in Russian Alaska that Columbia so desperately needs and do some spying on the side. Johan's espionage is carried out against the backdrop of the famous white nights of St. Petersburg, the nearly Arctic midsummer when the sun barely dips below the horizon and the sky seems to dissolve in ivory light. But even the oil shortage will fade to insignificance when Johan discovers what new weapons technology the Russians are developing, a threat even more fearsome than the atomic bombs of Austro-Hungary.

Description: The Civil Rights Movement is now remembered as a long-lost era, which came to an end along with the idealism of the 1960s. In Dark Days, Bright Nights, acclaimed scholar Peniel E. Joseph puts this pat assessment to the test, showing the 60s—particularly the tumultuous period after the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act—to be the catalyst of a movement that culminated in the inauguration of Barack Obama. Joseph argues that the 1965 Voting Rights Act burst a dam holding back radical democratic impulses. This political explosion initially took the form of the Black Power Movement, conventionally adjudged a failure. Joseph resurrects the movement to elucidate its unfairly forgotten achievements. Told through the lives of activists, intellectuals, and artists, including Malcolm X, Huey P. Newton, Amiri Baraka, Tupac Shakur, and Barack Obama, Dark Days, Bright Nights will make coherent a fraught half-century of struggle, reassessing its impact on American democracy and the larger world.
