Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
Beschreibung"Intimate Enemies" examines the transformation of Bolshevik Party ideology, language, and power relations during the crucial period leading up to Stalin's seizure of power. Igal Halfin uncovers this evolution in the language of Bolshevism. This language defined the methods for judging true party loyalty-in what Halfin describes as an examination of the 'hermeneutics of the soul, ' and became the basis for prosecuting the Party's enemies, particularly the "intimate enemies" within the Party itself.
PortraitIgal Halfin is professor of history at Tel Aviv University. He is the author of From Darkness to Light: Class, Consciousness, and Salvation in Revolutionary Russia and editor of Terror in My Soul: Communist Autobiographies on Trial, and Language and Revolution: The Making of Modern Political Identities.
