The Village and the Class War - Anti-Kulak Campaign in Estonia

April 8, 2013

This latest volume from CEU Press, second in the Historical Studies in Eastern Europe and Eurasia series, represents a significant advance in understanding post-war Baltic history. It explores what happened in rural society when a wave of persecution was launched in the Estonian countryside after the Second World War in connection with collectivization. It also answers questions about the reactions of Communist Party representatives, local councils, the farm population, the accused, and the not-yet accused. The author, Anu Mai Koll, is professor emerita of Baltic history, and director of the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies at Sodertorn University, Sweden. For more information, see
