  1. Rewolucja: Russian Poland, 1904–1907, by Robert E. Blobaum (1995). The revolution of 1905 in the Russian-ruled Kingdom of Poland marked the consolidation of major new influences on the political scene. As he examines the emergence of a mass political culture in Poland, Robert E. Blobaum offers the first history in any Western language of this watershed period.
  2. The Electrification of Russia, 1880–1926, by Jonathan Coopersmith (1992). The first full account of the widespread adoption of electricity in Russia, from the beginning in the 1880s to its early years as a state technology under Soviet rule. Coopersmith’s narrative of this crucial element in the modernization of Russia elucidates the deep-seated and chronic conflict between the utopianism of Soviet ideology and the reality of Soviet politics and economics.
  3. Revolution of the Mind: Higher Learning among the Bolsheviks, 1918–1929, by Michael David-Fox (1997). Using archival materials never previously accessible to Western scholars, Michael David-Fox analyzes Bolshevik Party educational and research initiatives in higher learning after 1917. His fresh consideration of the era of the New Economic Policy and cultural politics after the Revolution explains how new communist institutions rose to parallel and rival conventional higher learning from the Academy of Sciences to the universities.
  4. The Institution of Criticism, by Peter Uwe Hohendahl (1982). Drawing on the tradition of the Frankfurt School and on Jürgen Habermas’s concept of the public sphere, Hohendahl takes a close look at the social history of literary criticism in Germany since the eighteenth century, and sheds light on some of the important political and social forces that shape literature and culture. Including seven essays originally published in German, the book conveys the rich possibilities of the German perspective for those who employ American and French critical techniques and for students of contemporary critical theory.
  5. Building a National Literature: The Case of Germany, 1830–1870, by Peter Uwe Hohendahl, translated by Renate Baron Franciscono (1989). Hohendahl examines important elements in the making of a national literature, including the political and literary public sphere, the theory and practice of literary criticism, and the emergence of academic criticism as literary history.
  6. Reappraisals: Shifting Alignments in Postwar Critical Theory, by Peter Uwe Hohendahl (1991). A provocative account of the development of modern critical theory in Germany and the United States. Hohendahl interprets and subjects to critical scrutiny many of the central ideas of the Frankfurt School.
  7. The Self and Its Pleasures: Bataille, Lacan, and the History of the Decentered Subject, by Carolyn J. Dean (1992). In this innovative cultural history, the author sheds light on the origins of poststructuralist thought, paying particular attention to the reinterpretation of the self by Jacques Lacan, Georges Bataille, and other French thinkers. Dean examines an array of evidence from medical texts and literary works alike. The Self and Its Pleasures offers a pathbreaking understanding of the boundaries between theory and history.
