Hosszú leírás:
This first-hand witness account - originally written by Ludmila Miklashevskaya in 1976 and here translated into English by historian Elaine MacKinnon for the first time - tells the important story of one woman's persecution under Stalin. From Miklashevskaya's middle-class Jewish childhood in Odessa, to her life in exile as the wife of 'an enemy of the people' and false imprisonment in a labour camp for the attempted murder of NKVD leader Nikolai Yezhov, to her later attempts at rehabilitation, her memoir is a fascinating tapestry of Soviet artistic, intellectual, and political life set against the tumultuous backdrop of revolutions, wars, and repressive regimes.

Accompanied by a translator's introduction and detailed historical explanatory notes, Gender and Survival in Soviet Russia sheds new light on the relationship between power, gender, and society in 20th-century Russia. This book is thus a vital primary resource for scholars of modern Russian history and gender studies, offering a compelling and personal route into understanding how the machinations of Soviet Russia destroyed everyday life, tearing families apart and leaving scars that never healed.

Free of malice and full of acceptance and self-awareness, Ludmila Miklashevskaya's poignant and gripping memoir offers stirring testimony to how one remarkable woman, well-connected in the literary and cultural worlds, survived the vicissitudes, especially the dark side, of the Soviet experiment. Elaine MacKinnon's marvelously fluent translation of the Russian original captures the straight-thinking tone of this important contribution to Soviet, gender, Gulag, and Jewish studies.
