It covers a wide range of subjects, including the family, women, youth, science, trade unions, dissent, which was surprisingly extensive, and repression. It discusses continuities from and changes to the preceding Stalinist years, and provides an overall reassessment of Soviet society in this important period.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'This collected volume significantly advances the historiography on the Khrushchev era, and by further opening the curtain on important processes taking place within Soviet society and government, supplies a basis for further innovative work. It should be read by all interested in the USSR and more broadly post-World War II historical developments.' - H-Net, 2010
