Beginning in a handful of universities in the early years of the last century, British and Irish postgraduate research on Russia, the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe grew rapidly in the post-war period. It has been given further impetus by the fall of communism and the multitude of political, cultural and economic consequences which ensued. This bibliography registers a full century of academic study devoted to a vitally important area of the world.

The bibliography records doctoral and selected masters’ theses from British and Irish universities – over 3,300 in all. It covers all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences as they relate to the area of Russia, the former USSR and Eastern Europe. It is believed to be the fullest and longest record of postgraduate research in any interdisciplinary field of study, and reveals a strikingly broad range of topics and treatments: from Pushkin to Putin; from the Cold War to the transition economies; from the Bogomils to Solidarity; and from health care to human rights.

Intended primarily for today’s researchers and students as a guide to their predecessors’ work, the bibliography is also a contribution to the history of scholarship in its concern with this part of the world. Through it we can trace academic preoccupations, national initiatives and shifts in intellectual focus as they were reflected in a hundred years of investigation and analysis.

Entries show the author, title and subtitle of each thesis, with the awarding institution, degree awarded and date. Arrangement is by subject, subarranged by country/nation. Searching is aided by full author and subject indexes.

Dr Gregory Walker is a former Head of Slavonic and East European Collections at the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford. The late John S. G. Simmons, OBE, was Senior Research Fellow and Librarian, All Souls College, Oxford.

Reviews:

  • ‘This volume is a fascinating work in all kinds of ways. All scholars and researchers in the field are indebted to the labours of the compilers, Gregory Walker and the late John Simmons, for providing what will be an invaluable research aid ... In what it tells us ultimately of the workings of the human mind and spirit, this book is extraordinary...’ — Joe Andrew, Modern Language Review 104.1, 2009, 302-04 (full text online)
