Riassunto: Soviet official culture underwent a dramatic shift in the mid-1930s, when Stalin and his fellow leaders began to promote conventional norms, patriarchal families, tsarist heroes, and Russian literary classics. For Leon Trotsky—and many later commentators—this apparent embrace of bourgeois values marked a betrayal of the October Revolution and a retreat from socialism. In the first book to address these developments fully, David L. Hoffmann argues that, far from reversing direction, the Stalinist leadership remained committed to remaking both individuals and society—and used selected elements of traditional culture to bolster the socialist order.
Melding original archival research with new scholarship in the field, Hoffmann describes Soviet cultural and behavioral norms in such areas as leisure activities, social hygiene, family life, and sexuality. He demonstrates that the Soviet state’s campaign to effect social improvement by intervening in the lives of its citizens was not unique but echoed the efforts of other European governments, both fascist and liberal, in the interwar period. Indeed, in Europe, America, and Stalin’s Russia, governments sought to inculcate many of the same values—from order and efficiency to sobriety and literacy. For Hoffmann, what remains distinctive about the Soviet case is the collectivist orientation of official culture and the degree of coercion the state applied to pursue its goals.
Dal risvolto interno: "Shooting with a wide-angle lens, David L. Hoffmann locates Stalinist culture within the broader context of European modernity. To his great credit, he does so without obscuring the distinctive features of the Soviet state’s attitudes toward social intervention and mass politics. An engaging, clearly written, and much-needed rereading of the Soviet incarnation of modern mass culture, Stalinist Values represents a real achievement by a careful, thoughtful historian."—Donald Raleigh, University of North Carolina
"Stalinist Values is a wide-ranging, thorough survey and analysis of the cultural and social values promoted by Stalin’s regime. Hoffmann synthesizes and extends current research on the Stalinist project of the 1920s and‘30s and places it precisely within the context of twentieth century‘modernity.’"—Daniel Orlovsky, Southern Methodist University
