And Now My Soul is Hardened by Alan M. Ball
Book DescriptionWarfare, epidemics, and famine left millions of Soviet children homeless during the 1920s. Many became beggars, prostitutes, and thieves, and were denizens of both secluded underworld haunts and bustling train stations. Alan Ball's study of these abandoned children examines their lives and the strategies the government used to remove them from the streets lest they threaten plans to mold a new socialist generation. The "rehabilitation" of these youths and the results years later are an important lesson in Soviet history.

In 1921, Lenin called for the legalization of private trade and manufacturing. This New Economic Policy (NEP) spawned many thousands of private entrepreneurs, dubbed Nepmen. This title examines where the Nepmen came from, their importance in the Soviet economy, and the consequences of their "liquidation" at the end of the 1920s.
