about

The first full-length, archive-based history of Soviet Central Television’s production and programming in the decades before perestroika

In the first full-length study of Soviet Central Television to draw extensively on archival sources, interviews, and television recordings, Evans challenges the idea that Soviet mass culture in the Brezhnev era was dull and formulaic. Tracing the emergence of play, conflict, and competition on Soviet news programs, serial films, and variety and game shows, Evans shows that Soviet Central Television’s most popular shows were experimental and creative, laying the groundwork for Mikhail Gorbachev’s reforms and the post-Soviet media system.
Christine E. Evans is assistant professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She lives in Milwaukee, WI.

Editorial Reviews

"In exhuming 1970’s Soviet television, Christine Evans makes a fascinating discovery. Both the experimentalism of Gorbachev’s era and the neo-rigidity of Putin’s got their start under, yes, Leonid Brezhnev. Tocqueville told us this is how revolutions—and counter-revolutions—work, but Evans brings his insight to life. A subtle, illuminating, entertaining book.”—Stephen Sestanovich, author of Maximalist: America in the World from Truman to Obama
