Elena Shulman reveals the instrumental part these migrants played in the extension of Soviet state power and cultural dominion in the region. Their remarkable stories, recovered from archival letters, party documents, memoirs, press coverage, and films, shed new light on Soviet women's roles in state formation, the role of frontier Stalinism in structuring gender ideals, and the nature of Soviet society and Stalinism in the 1930s. Through these narratives, Elena Shulman offers a nuanced and complex picture of the "subcultures" of Stalinism--generational, regional, and semi-criminal--as well as the complexities of women's lives under Stalin and the limits of Moscow's rule over the periphery and even the Gulag."--Publisher's description."@en ;
