  • Everyday Stalinismby Sheila Fitzpatrick

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 12.99

    Here is a pioneering account of everyday life under Stalin, written by a leading authority on modern Russian history.

We read of a government bureaucracy... more...

  • Tear Off the Masks!by Sheila Fitzpatrick

    Princeton University Press 2005; US$ 36.35

    When revolutions happen, they change the rules of everyday life--both the codified rules concerning the social and legal classifications of citizens and the unwritten rules about how individuals present themselves to others. This occurred in Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, which laid the foundations of the Soviet state, and again in... more...

  • Spy in the Archives, Aby Sheila Fitzpatrick

    I.B.Tauris 2013; US$ 19.99

    Moscow in the 1960s was the other side of the Iron Curtain: mysterious, exotic, even dangerous. In 1966 the historian Sheila Fitzpatrick travelled to Moscow to research in the Soviet archives. This was the era of Brezhnev, of a possible ‘thaw’ in the Cold War, when the Soviets couldn’t decide either to thaw out properly or re-freeze. Moscow, the world... more...

  • On Stalin's Teamby Sheila Fitzpatrick

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 20.88

    Stalin was the unchallenged dictator of the Soviet Union for so long that most historians have dismissed the officials surrounding him as mere yes-men and political window dressing. On Stalin's Team overturns this view, revealing that behind Stalin was a group of loyal men who formed a remarkably effective team with him from the late 1920s until... more...

  • Mischka's Warby Sheila Fitzpatrick

    I.B.Tauris 2017; US$ 28.50

    In 1943, 22-year-old Latvian Mischka Danos chanced on a terrible sight - a pit filled with the bodies of Jews killed by the occupying Germans. A few months later, escaping conscription into the Waffen-SS in Riga, Mischka entered Hitler’s Reich itself on a student exchange to Germany. There, as the war drew to an end, he narrowly escaped death in the... more...

  • A Researcher's Guide to Sources on Soviet Social History in the 1930sby Sheila Fitzpatrick; Lynne Viola

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 47.95

    The Stalin era has been less accessible to researchers than either the preceding decade or the postwar era. The basic problem is that during the Stalin years censorship restricted the collection and dissemination of information (and introduced bias and distortion into the statistics that were published), while in the post-Stalin years access to archives... more...

  • Shelter from the Holocaustby Mark Edele; Sheila Fitzpatrick; Atina Grossmann

    Wayne State University Press 2017; Not Available

    About 1.5 million East European Jews—mostly from Poland, the Ukraine, and Russia—survived the Second World War behind the lines in the unoccupied parts of the Soviet Union. Some of these survivors, following the German invasion of the USSR in 1941, were evacuated as part of an organized effort by the Soviet state, while others became refugees who organized... more...
