9780415687546: Soviet Consumer Culture in the Brezhnev Era (BASEES/Routledge Series on Russian and East European Studies)

After decades of turmoil and trauma, the Brezhnev era brought stability and an unprecedented rise in living standards to the Soviet Union, enabling ordinary people to enjoy modern consumer goods on an entirely new scale. This book analyses the politics and economics of the state’s efforts to improve living standards, and shows how mass consumption was often used as an instrument of legitimacy, ideology and modernization. However, the resulting consumer revolution brought its own problems for the socialist regime. Rising well-being and the resulting ethos of consumption altered citizens’ relationship with the state and had profound consequences for the communist project.

The book uses a wealth of sources to explore the challenge that consumer modernity was posing to Soviet ‘mature socialism’ between the mid-1960s and the early 1980s. It combines analysis of economic policy and public debates on consumerism with the stories of ordinary people and their attitudes to fashion, Western goods and the home. The book contests the notion that Soviet consumers were merely passive, abused, eternally queuing victims and that the Brezhnev era was a period of ‘stagnation’, arguing instead that personal consumption provided the incentive and the space for individuals to connect and interact with society and the regime even before perestroika. This book offers a lively account of Soviet society and everyday life during a period which is rapidly becoming a new frontier of historical research.

About the Author:

Natalya Chernyshova is a Lecturer in Modern History at the University of Winchester, UK.

Review:

"All in all, this is an excellent book, thoroughly researched and persuasively argued. Chernyshova’s captivating and timely study of the ‘progress and frustration’ (p. 205) of the Brezhnev years will be of tremendous interest to anyone with a serious interest in the late Soviet period, especially social and economic historians and anthropologists."

-Graham H. Roberts. Université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense

 

"Chernyshova’s account simultaneously advances the ongoing debate on the Brezhnev era and adroitly places the idiosyncrasies of Soviet consumerism within a transnational perspective, enriching our perspective on both. Because this brief review cannot do justice to the wealth of thought-provoking ideas and issues Chernyshova raises, I urge all those interested in the history of the Brezhnev era, fashion, as well as Soviet and European consumerism to read this book."
