...this monograph provides a remarkable contribution to the new scholarship on Cold War history in terms of both theory and empirics. It is compulsory reading for anyone interested in the everyday life of young people in the Soviet Union and beyond, but can also be recommended for students and scholars of contemporary state-youth interaction in the former Soviet Union. After all, winning hearts and minds at home and abroad is just as important today as it was during the Cold War." - Europe-Asia Studies
