Russian Cultural Studies: An Introduction

By Catriona Kelly; David Shepherd | Go to book overview

Chronology of Events from 1917

This chronology is not intended to be exhaustive, and emphasizes cultural rather than political history, chronologies of which are relatively widely available -- see e.g. G. Hosking, A History of the Soviet Union: Final Edition ( London, 1992). Unless otherwise stated, the organization within years is thematic rather than chronological, such that major national and international political events are followed by changes in domestic and cultural policies, important events in the arts and popular culture, etc.
