 Communism on Tomorrow Street: Mass Housing and Everyday Life after Stalin by Steven E. Harris

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

Apr 24, 2013
Communism on Tomorrow Street examines how, beginning under Khrushchev in 1953, a generation of Soviet citizens moved from overcrowded communal dwellings 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 period.
