Communism on Tomorrow Street: Mass Housing and Everyday Life after Stalin

Kennan Institute U.S. Alumni Series

This book examines how, beginning under Khrushchev in 1953, a generation of Soviet citizens moved from the overcrowded communal dwellings of the Stalin era to modern single-family apartments, later dubbed khrushchevka. Arguing that moving to a separate apartment allowed ordinary urban dwellers to experience Khrushchev’s thaw, Steven E. Harris fundamentally shifts interpretation of the thaw, conventionally understood as an elite phenomenon.

Location: 
6th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
