“Histories of Everyday Life in Totalitarian Regimes is a new set in St. James Press’s award-winning Literature of Society series. It explores daily life in such totalitarian dictatorships as Nazi Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union, China under Mao, and North Korea. Two-thirds of the publication (200 entries) focus on compelling personal histories detailing the experiences of individuals in these regimes. The personal experiences are conveyed in such first-hand accounts as memoirs, autobiographies, diaries, and letters. An additional 100 entries interwoven throughout the three volumes further elucidate daily life in totalitarian regimes by exploring works of fiction dedicated to the topic. Perspectives from both the rulers and the ruled, from different age groups and occupations, are represented to give an understanding of the social, cultural, political, and economic conditions.” (Thomas Riggs & Company, Missoula, Montana)
