Abstract

tunity to participate in the choice o f texts. As for the pupils, they are generally well- disciplined (except on school outings), eager to learn, and willing to toil uncomplain- ingly as unpaid school janitors. From Moscow, as an addition to the Russian subset o f the 1-actually-lived-there genre, lacks the stylistic polish o f Hedrick Smith's classic The R u s s i a n s - and Smith's use o f scholarly literature to support and amplify his anecdotes. Nevertheless, O ' B r i e n ' s memoir is a very readable, responsible contribution to the picture o f h o w ordinary people in that part o f the world are living their post-Soviet daily lives. Katherine Bliss E a t o n Denton, Texas Victor Buchli. An Archeology o f Socialism. Oxford/New York: Berg, 1999. 228 pp. $65.00. Distributed b y N e w Y o r k University Press, New York. This book examines the material culture of domicile during the Soviet Union's ver- sion of "socialism" from the 1920s until the end of the "experiment" in 1991.
