Notes from Underground: Rock Music Counterculture in Russia

By Thomas Cushman | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

A number of individuals and institutions provided me with crucial support at various points in this study. Wellesley College provided me with generous funding and sabbatical leave which enabled me to travel to Russia for extended periods to complete the research. Without this funding, the present study would not have been possible. The Pew Charitable Trust, which funded the Wellesley College Pew Summer Seminar Textual Strategies, provided extra funds for summer travel and for intellectual enrichment which has found its way into these pages. The faculty of the Harvard University Department of Sociology graciously invited me to offer a departmental colloquium; the presentation and discussion which followed helped me to crystallize some of the ideas which eventually found their way into this book. I am grateful to the St. Petersburg Institute of Sociology for inviting me to St. Petersburg in 1992 to complete the research for the project. Finally, the Harvard Russian Research Center provided me with office space and library privileges which were very beneficial in the course of writing this book.

Many people offered me conversation, criticism, commentary, and support which were crucial to this project: Stjepan Mestrovic, James Tucker, David Riesman, Gideon Sjoberg, Jonathan Knudsen, Liah Greenfeld, Igor Kon, Gregory Gomez, Murray Milner, Michele RivkinFish, Tim Luke, Enric Bou, Carol Hartigan, Charles Simpson, Tom Hodge, and Luin Goldring. I am, of course, responsible for the points of view and any mistakes found in this book. A special thanks is in order for my colleagues in the Department of Sociology at Wellesley College: Susan Silbey, Jonathan Imber, and Lee Cuba. Their confidence in me as a person, scholar, and teacher provided moral and intellectual support during the research and writing of this book. These individuals define authentic and meaningful collegiality. I owe a special thanks to Elena Krasnoperova and Mariana Aleksandrovich for help in transcribing all the interviews, translating key passages, and proofreading. The research could not have been done, nor the book written, without the help of these remarkable women. Catherine Hudak also helped immensely
