Life Has Become More Joyo. Book has no tears to the text or binding. The book shows evidence of being carefully read, carefully owned. Petrone looks not only at the discourse and goals of the celebrations, but at how they actually played out. She contrasts their impact in Moscow and the provinces, urban and rural areas, and among the Russians and the non-Russian nationalities.

Time after time, these projects had unintended consequences and petered out in a morass of surface compliance, resistance, and apathy. This was true of the prosecutions for theft of socialist property, the drive of 1938-40 for increased labor discipline, and the suppression of jazz, to name a few instances. But in fact millions of people alive in the late 1930s had been adults before the Revolutions of 1917, and there is much evidence that in regard to religion, for instance, they often spoke to younger people about their views. Karen Petrone has provided a rich study, for an area one might have thought would be simple for the state to control, of how and why that was so.
