Abstract

The High Title of a Communist by Edward Cohn is a welcome new book on a rather neglected topic of the Communist party in post-WWII period. It deals with three main themes: the impact of the Great Patriotic War on Soviet society, the continuity between late Stalinism and Khrushchev’s Thaw, and the role of the Communist Party’s disciplinary practices in shaping post-War social and political norms.
This is an important book which advances our understanding of the in the post-War Soviet Union through a detailed analysis of the Communist Party in that period.
