TL;DR: In "Motherland in Danger" as discussed by the authors, Karel Berkhoff explores how the Soviet media reflected - and distorted - every aspect of the war, from the successes and blunders on the front lines to the institution of forced labor on farm fields and factory floors.
Abstract: Much of the story about the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi Germany has yet to be told In "Motherland in Danger", Karel Berkhoff addresses one of the most neglected questions facing historians of the Second World War: how did the Soviet leadership sell the campaign against the Germans to the people on the home front? For Stalin, the obstacles were manifold Repelling the German invasion would require a mobilization so large that it would test the limits of the Soviet state Could the USSR marshal the manpower necessary to face the threat? How could the authorities overcome inadequate infrastructure and supplies[unk] Might Stalin's regime fail to survive a sustained conflict with the Germans? "Motherland in Danger" takes us inside the Stalinist state to witness, from up close, its propaganda machine Using sources in many languages, including memoirs and documents of the Soviet censor, Berkhoff explores how the Soviet media reflected - and distorted - every aspect of the war, from the successes and blunders on the front lines to the institution of forced labor on farm fields and factory floors He also details the media's handling of Nazi atrocities and the Holocaust, as well as its stinting treatment of the Allies, particularly the United States, the UK, and Poland Berkhoff demonstrates not only that propaganda was critical to the Soviet war effort but also that it has colored perceptions of the war to the present day, both inside and outside of Russia

TL;DR: This article gathered a stellar roster of contributors to offer a range of perspectives from different disciplines to attempt to understand the pervasiveness of genocidal violence in the twenty-first century.
Abstract: The twentieth century has been called, not inaccurately, a century of genocide. And the beginning of the twenty-first century has seen little change, with genocidal violence in Darfur, Congo, Sri Lanka, and Syria. Why is genocide so widespread, and so difficult to stop, across societies that differ so much culturally, technologically, and politically? That's the question that this collection addresses, gathering a stellar roster of contributors to offer a range of perspectives from different disciplines to attempt to understand the pervasiveness of genocidal violence. Challenging outdated beliefs and conventions that continue to influence our understanding, Genocide constitutes a major contribution to the scholarship on mass violence.

TL;DR: The Gulag Survivor as discussed by the authors is the first book to examine at length and in-depth the post-camp experience of Stalin's victims and their fate in post-Soviet Russia.
Abstract: Even before its dissolution in 1991, the Soviet Union was engaged in an ambivalent struggle to come to terms with its violent and repressive history. Following the death of Stalin in 1953, entrenched officials attempted to distance themselves from the late dictator without questioning the underlying legitimacy of the Soviet system. At the same time, the Gulag victims to society opened questions about the nature, reality, and mentality of the system that remain contentious to this day. The Gulag Survivor is the first book to examine at length and in-depth the post-camp experience of Stalin's victims and their fate in post-Soviet Russia. As such, it is an essential companion to the classic work of Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Based on extensive interviews, memoirs, official records, and recently opened archives, The Gulag Survivor describes what survivors experienced when they returned to society, how officials helped or hindered them, and how issues surrounding the existence of the returnees evolved from the fifties up to the present. Adler establishes the social and historical context of the first wave of returnees who were "liberated" into exile in Stalin's time. She reviews diverse aspects of return including camp culture, family reunion, and the psychological consequences of the Gulag. Adler then focuses on the enduring belief in the Communist Party among some survivors and the association between returnees and the growing dissident movement. She concludes by examining how issues surrounding the survivors reemerged in the eighties and nineties and the impact they had on the failing Soviet system. Written and researched while Russian archives were most available and while there were still survivors to tell their stories, The Gulag Survivor is a groundbreaking and essential work in modern Russian history. It will be read by historians, political scientists, Slavic scholars, and sociologists.
