Culture & Corn: Reform and Reaction in the Sixties

Welcome to the seventh edition of our digest of Soviet History. This week we turned our attentions to the social, economic and political parameters of de-Stalinization. We have a bumper crop of terrific posts – many of which focus on Khrushchev’s favorite vegetable….you guessed it…CORN!!! Other significant topics include the cultural ferment of “The Thaw,” the Sino-Soviet split, the space race, and new forms of expression and leisure.

We are taking a break next week for midterms but will be back in your feed on April 23. Enjoy this deluxe edition!
