New York: Basic Books, ISBN The overarching concept of this book is intriguing. Snyder thus analytically interlocks the two most murderous regimes of the first half of the 20th century by identifying an East European space. In so doing—25 years after the Historikerstreit, in which German historians fought bitterly over the singularity of the Shoah—he repudiates the uniqueness of the German murder of the Jews and instead situates the Holocaust in a spatially circumscribed history of violence.

Yet the pitfalls of this brilliant concept are apparent from the outset: if the spatially defined domain fails to hold empirically, the entire concept falters. Ever since the arrival of the spatial turn in history, it has seemed promising to write a history of 20th-century state violence through the prism of the East European space where most of the Stalinist and Nazi mass murders actually took place. Both Nazi and Stalinist hit squads acted in this space; both regimes occupied this part of Europe; and both regimes had grand plans of how they were going to integrate—and exploit—these regions in their empires.

Both Hitler and Stalin drew radical conclusions from the collapse of the Old Europe, but with very different aims in mind. And while the Nazi regime killed about 10, people in concentration camps and prisons before the outbreak of World War II in , the Stalinist leadership had already allowed millions to die from hunger and had shot about one million people. Here we already encounter one of the major problems of this book.

True, Snyder mentions these victims in passing 11 , but he does not go into any depth, probably because they fit into neither his temporal nor his spatial framework. For the violent policies of the Bolsheviks in general and the Stalinist leadership in particular, the experience of the Civil War was formative, and the Ukrainian famine of —33 also in many ways constituted a reliving of the famine that had preceded it by ten years.

A history of Soviet violence has to be able to include the Civil War and the —22 famine; if it cannot, its Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.

Bloodlands : Europe Between Hitler and Stalin.

Timothy S nyder , Bloodlands. Europe between Hitler and Stalin. With so much written, separately and in tandem, one wonders if there is a room for yet another study of the so-called totalitarian twins. Certainly so, argues Timothy Snyder. Snyder takes to task the entire body of literature that preceded his own Bloodlands: Europe between Hitler and Stalin. In captivating prose that sets him apart from most historians, Snyder gives voice to multiple individual victims who died as a direct result of two sadistic regimes that pursued unrealizable utopias and radicalized their murderous drives whenever they saw their plans frustrated.

To be asked to review such a text nearly seven years after its original publication is to an extent to be asked not only to consider the success of the book in meeting these fundamental aims, but its impact on a wider field and understanding of its subject matter. Snyder set out to change our understanding of the Bloodlands — so, to put it crudely, how far did he succeed? In some senses, as Snyder acknowledges, Bloodlands was a history for its own time. It is, self-evidently, a post-Cold War project not least because in practical terms it has access to insights that were unavailable to scholars before the collapse of the Soviet Union. But perhaps more importantly it is a post-Holocaust analysis too. By which I mean it is an analysis cast after the Holocaust had been cemented within a wider historical consciousness.

Snyder that was first published by Basic Books on October 28, In the book, Snyder examines the political, cultural and ideological context tied to a specific region of Central and Eastern Europe , where Joseph Stalin 's Soviet Union and Adolf Hitler 's Nazi Germany committed mass killings of an estimated 14 million noncombatants between and , the majority outside the death camps of the Holocaust. Snyder's thesis is that the "bloodlands", a region that is now Poland , Belarus , Ukraine , the Baltic states Estonia , Latvia and Lithuania , northeastern Romania and the westernmost fringes of Russia , is the area that the regimes of Stalin and Hitler, despite their conflicting goals, interacted to increase suffering and bloodshed many times worse than any seen in Western history. Snyder notes similarities between the two totalitarian regimes and also the enabling interactions that reinforced the destruction and the suffering that were brought to bear on noncombatants. The book earned many positive reviews in the press and has been called " revisionist history of the best kind. However, the book was less well-received in academic reviews and was criticised from several professional historians. The Eastern European regions that Snyder terms "Bloodlands" is the area where Hitler's vision of racial supremacy and Lebensraum , resulting in the Final Solution and other Nazi atrocities , met, sometimes in conflict, sometimes in cooperation, with Stalin's vision of a communist ideology that resulted in the deliberate starvation, imprisonment, and murder of innocent men, women and children in Gulags and elsewhere.
