(p.258) Conclusion
Myth, Memory, Trauma

Polly Jones

Yale University Press

The Conclusion looks at the legacy of Stalin as it stands now. That post-Soviet leaders and citizens, as in other countries tackling traumatic pasts, continue to grapple with the same questions as previous leaders and citizens suggests that it was not only the Soviet limits on discussion that left de-Stalinization unresolved in the 1950s and 1960s. Indeed, the decade and a half after Stalin's death witnessed a huge variety of approaches to remembering Stalinism. These lent the period its unique blend of hope and disillusionment about the post-Stalinist relaunch of the Soviet project itself.
