I’m unusually happy to announce that my first book just came out. It’s published by Cambridge University Press and entitled Soviet Russians under Nazi Occupation: Fragile Loyalties in World War II. We academics don’t get to see tangible fruits of our work that often. Having spent years collecting, systematizing, reading, and making sense of a pretty huge amount of archival material, oral testimonies, memoirs, and diaries, and then distilling everything into a coherent narrative, it feels great to behold the final product in its physical format.
For the time being, the book is only available in a very expensive hardback version (and a less expensive eBook version). If someone wants to read it but can’t afford the price, a paperback version will be out in a year or so.
In the meantime, or for the short version, you can head over to War on the Rocks and read my piece Fragile Loyalties: Soviet Russians between Hitler and Stalin.
