Abstract or Description

This is the first Russian-language volume to consider Russian cultural history through a lens that is increasingly popular in the social sciences and humanities across the world — the emotions. On what basis does the widespread belief persist that some people — in particular Russians — are more emotional than others? How should historians, literary critics and anthropologists work with the emotions; how should they describe them, take them into account and analyze them? How do collective emotions arise? What acts on them? Who can take it upon themselves to educate others in emotion? Is it true that the course of history is one of obtaining control over our emotions? How do political regimes use and manipulate the emotions of their subjects and citizens? Answers to these questions are found in 12 studies (and two methodological introductions) by noted Russian and foreign specialists in Russian history and culture.
