Rosalind Marsh presents the first study of one important aspect of this process: the major part which literature has played in reassessing the past, transforming public opinion, and hence in promoting political change in Russia. She provides a chronology of literary politics in this period, and analyses the content and influence of newly published literature on a variety of historical themes, including Stalin and Stalinism, Lenin, the Civil War, the February and October Revolutions and the fall of Tsarism. She explores the heated moral and political debates inspired among different sections of Russian society by works of many authors, including Rybakov, Solzhenitsyn, Grossman, Bunin and Gorkii." "Professor Marsh also investigates the changing role of both history and literature in Russia in the 1990s, and demonstrates the difficulties and challenges still facing Russian writers and historians under Yeltsin's presidency."--BOOK JACKET." ;
