Annotation:
Recalling the diarist Winston Smith in George Orwell's NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR, the diarists represented in this study lived in Stalin's Russia, whose totalitarian rule extended into the home, the personal life, and even the self--as one's very mind and consciousness were to be redirected toward the communal goals of the new society.||Intellectuals, government workers, housewives, students, and others from all walks of life found a free space to record and explore their experiences and dreams, even though the very act of diary-keeping put them in danger. REVOLUTION ON MY MIND presents an unprecedented window into the everyday lives of Soviet citizens, and underscores how survival sometimes depends on the written word.

Praise

'...Jochen Hellbeck's searches in private collections and his personal inquiries have yielded a rich harvest of Stalin-era diaries which give important new insights into the ways in which Soviet citizens struggled to rationalize the monstrous irrationality of Stalinism as they worked on perfecting their inner selves" - Aileen Kelly 04/26/2007

"Hellbeck's analysis of his diarists is first-rate, and his enthusiasm for his subject is infectious." - Sheila Fitzpatrick 08/28/2006
