The new elite in post-communist Eastern Europe ( )
15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With the collapse of the Soviet Union, a radical metamorphosis took place in Eastern Europe as major power structures were replaced by new systems of power and authority. With new power systems came new types of dominant elites. The New Elite in Post-Communist Eastern Europe identifies those elites who have gained control of the political, economic, cultural, and scientific institutions of the new state systems and examines the nature of power in the post-Communist world and the relationships between the old and new elite."--BOOK JACKET

Soviet cinematography, 1918-1991 : ideological conflict and social reality by Dmitry Shlapentokh ( Book )
5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With a historical sweep that recent events have made definitive, the authors examine the influence of official ideology on the presentation of social reality by Soviet cinema. The order of the study follows the chronology of the social history of the Soviet Union, from the October Revolution to the final days of glasnost. Within the framework of an introduction that lays out the conceptual terminology used to describe that shifting ideological landscape, the authors analyze both the social groups appearing in the films and the relations of film directors and other film makers to state censorship and ideological control. For film students used to the aesthetic categories and philosophical assumptions of the West, the Shlapentokhs' book will provide a compelling new perspective. With its vast array of hard-to-obtain source materials, this is a much-needed reference work for anyone interested in Soviet film making

Written in the spirit of comparative and historical analysis, this book addresses the relationship between the center and its provinces - an important issue in any society - using Russia as a case study. The authors investigate the historical stages of Russia's past with a special focus on the postcommunist era, a time when the movement toward regional autonomy (regionalization) is extremely important as a molder of political and economic life. In addition, the book shows how historical traditions, on the one hand, and the new market economy and democratization, on the other, will shape the relationship between the center and provinces in the coming decade

Fear in contemporary society : its negative and positive effects by Vladimir Shlapentokh ( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pointing to the flaws of these views, which are primarily based on the Lockean-Parsonian tradition and the postmodern perspective, Shlapentokh proposes that the Hobbesian viewpoint be included in social analysis. He assumes that social order is shaped not only from "below," but also from "above," with the state as a positive agent."--BOOK JACKET
