Music and Power in the Soviet 1930s: A History of Composers’ Bureaucracy
2009 0-7734-4835-7
The existing literature on music in Soviet society primarily discusses specific works or composers rather than the context within which music was produced. This book examines the relationship of art and politics in the Soviet Union during the early Stalinist phase, 1930s, leaning on extensive archival work.
