Editorial Reviews

"The Soviet Dream World is an excellent contribution to studies of Soviet trade and consumption and a great read for undergraduate, graduate students, scholars, and the general public interested in Soviet history and the history of consumerism." -- Elena A. Osokina, University of South Carolina "Randall’s book, therefore, makes a welcome and timely contribution to the emerging literature on Soviet consumption, living standards and everyday life in the 1930s. . .The book as a whole is likely to have a broad appeal. It will find a readership amongst specialist researchers and undergraduate students alike." -- Melanie Ilic, University of Gloucestershire
