This book, published in 1937, reported on a four week visit to Moscow in 1936 to study the making of Moscow as a showpiece Soviet capital. At its core was the 1935 General Plan for the Reconstruction of Moscow but the book was a study of planning in the Soviet rather than the Western sense. Thus it covered many aspects of the city’s social and economic life including industry and finance, education and housing production as well as governance and town planning. Much first hand detail is included, based on the visit and the authors’ meetings with Soviet officials and citizens that illustrate various points, usually in praise. The book made a significant contribution towards the growing arguments in 1930s Britain and other parts of the Anglophone world for a bolder, more comprehensive and more state-led approach to planning. In turn these arguments had an important impact in shaping the policies adopted in the 1940s.

The post-Soviet years have widely been interpreted as a period of intense moral questioning, debate, and struggle. Despite this claim, few studies have revealed how this moral experience has been lived and articulated by Russians themselves. This book provides an intimate portrait of how five Muscovites have experienced the post-Soviet years as a period of intense refashioning of their moral personhood, and how this process can only be understood at the intersection of their unique personal experiences, a shared Russian/Soviet history, and increasingly influential global discourses and practices. The result is a new approach to understanding everyday moral experience and the processes by which new moral persons are cultivated.

Born out of the interconnection and interrelation of notions of space, gender and sexuality, this work explores the gay club as an institution. Objects of my comparative analysis are gay clubs located in Moscow and San Francisco. Localities of queer sociality are dependent on historical background, cultural heritage and social discourse. Therefore, my work reveals that queer space in a particular geographical location is bound to be different from its counterparts elsewhere in the world. This work shows that while queer space of Moscow is tense, queer space of San Francisco is more relaxed. The club in Moscow offers overwhelming commodities, while the club in San Francisco is not as plentiful. With a number of differences between the spatial arrangements of the clubs, and the number and variety of products they offer, this work is set to investigate the role of the club for gay population in both locations.

This book completes the author's study of the sociology of the literary process in Soviet Russia, begun in The Making of the State Reader: Social and Aesthetic Contexts of the Reception of Soviet Literature (Stanford, 1997). The author demonstrates that Socialist Realism is not so much directed as it is self-directed; the transformation of the author into his own censor is the true history of Soviet literature.
