Soviet Apartment Life During the Khrushchev Years

eBook - 2015
Rate this:
This book is a social and cultural history of the massive construction campaign that Khrushchev instituted in 1957 to resolve the housing crisis in the Soviet Union and to provide each family with its own apartment. Decent housing was deemed the key to a healthy, productive home life, which was essential to the realization of socialist collectivism. The book shows how the many aspects of this enormous state initiative - from neighborhood planning to interior design - sought to alleviate crowded, undignified living conditions and sculpt residents into ideal Soviet citizens.
