Practicing Stalinism

J. Arch Getty

Yale University Press

This chapter examines an eclectic selection of practices and behaviors that suggest the continuity of entrenched structures of Russian practice and the personalization of politics. The chapter considers the implications of letter writing, awards, and medals, the value of collective rather than individual responsibility, and elite social roles. All these practices have deep roots in Russian culture and consciously or unconsciously continued into the Soviet period and beyond.

Keywords:   Russian practice, Russian politics, letter writing, awards, social roles, Soviet period
