This is the first book to analyze the relationship between the Soviet state and society from the October Revolution of 1917 to the revolution under Stalin of the late 1920s and early 1930s. Professor Lewis Siegelbaum explores the evolution of the ruling Communist Party and its New Economic Policy and the changing fortunes of industrial workers, peasants, and the scientific and cultural intelligentsia. He demonstrates how these different actors sought to appropriate the promise of the 1917 Revolution for their own purposes, highlights the compromises they made, and explains why in the late 1920s these compromises started to break down.

Industry Reviews

"...this book is a most useful tool for refocusing the examination of Soviet Russia." J. Zimmerman, Choice "...a pioneering study of the interaction of Soviet state and society in the ideological, political, economic, and social spheres from 1918 to 1929...A short review cannot do justice to the merits of the book. As a work of synthesis, it combines brilliant and balanced conceptualization of the problems and tensions in Soviet state and society, a formidable command of the current scholarship on the period, and an agenda of topics for further research that will make use of recently opened Soviet archives." Thomas S. Pearson, The Historian "...a well-written and scrupulous synthesis of the abundant new scholarship on the 1920s...Siegelbaum recaptures the sense of directionless and uncertainty prevalent during the 1920s...an exacting interpretive guide." Stephen Kotkin, Journal of Modern History
