9780674050013: The Ukrainian West: Culture and the Fate of Empire in Soviet Lviv (Harvard Historical Studies)

In 1990, months before crowds in Moscow and other major cities dismantled their monuments to Lenin, residents of the western Ukrainian city of Lviv toppled theirs. William Jay Risch argues that Soviet politics of empire inadvertently shaped this anti-Soviet city, and that opposition from the periphery as much as from the imperial center was instrumental in unraveling the Soviet Union.

Lviv’s borderlands identity was defined by complicated relationships with its Polish neighbor, its imperial Soviet occupier, and the real and imagined West. The city’s intellectuals―working through compromise rather than overt opposition―strained the limits of censorship in order to achieve greater public use of Ukrainian language and literary expression, and challenged state-sanctioned histories with their collective memory of the recent past. Lviv’s post–Stalin-generation youth, to which Risch pays particular attention, forged alternative social spaces where their enthusiasm for high culture, politics, soccer, music, and film could be shared.

The Ukrainian West enriches our understanding not only of the Soviet Union’s postwar evolution but also of the role urban spaces, cosmopolitan identities, and border regions play in the development of nations and empires. And it calls into question many of our assumptions about the regional divisions that have characterized politics in Ukraine. Risch shines a bright light on the political, social, and cultural history that turned this once-peripheral city into a Soviet window on the West.

About the Author:

William Jay Risch is Associate Professor of History at Georgia College and State University.

Review:

Risch's examination of the political, social, and cultural history of Lviv―one of the major Soviet windows on the West―is unmatched in its detail and depth of understanding. His analysis of the rise of nonconformist trends in the sphere of popular culture heralds a welcome addition to the history of Soviet society in the post-World War II era. (Serhii Plokhii, Harvard University)

An intriguing account of cultural life in Lviv. This work stands out as the best introduction to the city's recent history in English. Risch makes an important contribution to Soviet, Ukrainian, East European, borderlands, and urban history alike. (Mark von Hagen, Arizona State University)
