Long DescriptionIn the early sixteenth century, the monk Filofei proclaimed Moscow the "Third Rome." By the 1930s, intellectuals and artists all over the world thought of Moscow as a mecca of secular enlightenment. In Moscow, the Fourth Rome , Katerina Clark shows how Soviet officials and intellectuals, in seeking to capture the imagination of leftist and anti-fascist intellectuals throughout the world, sought to establish their capital as the cosmopolitan center of a post-Christian confederation and to rebuild it to become a beacon for the rest of the world. Clark provides an interpretative cultural history of the city during the crucial 1930s, the decade of the Great Purge. She draws on the work of intellectuals such as Sergei Eisenstein, Sergei Tretiakov, Mikhail Koltsov, and Ilya Ehrenburg to shed light on the singular Zeitgeist of that most Stalinist of periods. In her account, the decade emerges as an important moment in the prehistory of key concepts in literary and cultural studies today-transnationalism, cosmopolitanism, and world literature. By bringing to light neglected antecedents, she provides a new polemical and political context for understanding canonical works of writers such as Brecht, Benjamin, Lukacs, and Bakhtin. Moscow, the Fourth Rome breaches the intellectual iron curtain that has circumscribed cultural histories of Stalinist Russia, by broadening the framework to include considerable interaction with Western intellectuals and trends. Its integration of the understudied international dimension into the interpretation of Soviet culture remedies misunderstandings of the world-historical significance of Moscow under Stalin.

As our site has grown, we have gotten more requests for data and image downloads. When we were small we handled these by hand and then later added a little automation. Now we have cleaned it up and made it easier to use.

Today we made it easier to see what it is we have to offer by cleaning up the look of the download page. We present more information to users before they log in to the system.

We cleaned up the purchase section of the page a great deal. Our downloads are not free (except for the sample data) and in the past, each download had to be purchased one at a time. now you can select multiple items and pay just once.

We made our pricing considerably easier to understand. We have always given discounts if you have already made a purchase. But it could be a little confusing because if you hand't purchased, you would see one price (the full price). But after your purchase you could return to the download page and see different prices. This confused people and they though that they over paid. Now the full price is displayed clearly all the time and instead of showing reduced prices, we now list a DISCOUNT as part of your order. And in your transaction history, your discount will always be visible to you.

Finally, we made it easier to get to your download once you have made a purchase. Right in your transaction history, the links to your downloads are easier to understand. When you download a file, the system will know if you have successfully downloaded, you are in the process of downloading, or if you ran into issues while downloading (or canceled). The status of your download is clearly identified.

We hope that these changes make the download page easier for you to use and understand. Feel free to send us your feedback about the page.
