About this book

The 'Cominternians' who staffed the Communist International in Moscow from its establishment in 1919 to its dissolution in 1943 led transnational lives and formed a cosmopolitan but closed and privileged world. The book tells of their experience in the Soviet Union through the decades of hope and terror.

About the authors

Brigitte Studer is Professor of Contemporary History at the University of Bern, Switzerland, specialising in the histories of communism, Stalinism and gender. She has published widely on the Comintern, on political and cultural interactions between European communism and the Soviet Union, on gender and communism, and on communist subjectivities.

Reviews

“The Transnational World of the Cominternians sounds exotic, offering to serve as a guide to the denizens of another planet. … In The Transnational World of the Cominternians one can see the outlines of a truly alternative history of the twentieth century.” (Padraic Kenney, The American Historical Review, October, 2016)

“This book presents a concentrated and engaging collection of historian Brigitte Studer’s research on international communism and its pivotal centre between the wars … . This book must surely be recommended to anyone interested in the Comintern, and will soon be seen as a standard reference work by both established scholars and future students of international communism and the Comintern.” (Fredrik Petersson, International Review of Social History, Vol. 61, April, 2016)

“Brigitte Studer

emphasizes the importance of Soviet autobiographical practices in the lives of international communists. … chapters could easily be assigned to advanced undergraduates as standalone essays. The book provides a brief, accessible, and engaging English-language survey of Studer’s theoretically sophisticated body of work on international communism and Soviet subjectivity.” (Lisa A. Kirschenbaum, Slavic Review, 2016)
