Future of Nostalgia by Svetlana Boym

Book Description

Combining personal memoir, philosophical essay, and historical analysis, Svetlana Boym explores the spaces of collective nostalgia that connect national biography and personal self-fashioning in the twenty-first century. She guides us through the ruins and construction sites of post-communist cities-St. Petersburg, Moscow, Berlin, and Prague-and the imagined homelands of exiles-Benjamin, Nabokov, Mandelstahm, and Brodsky. From Jurassic Park to the Totalitarian Sculpture Garden, Boym unravels the threads of this global epidemic of longing and its antidotes.

Another Freedom by Svetlana Boym Another Freedom, Paperback (April 2012)

Exploring the cross-cultural history of the idea of freedom, from its origins in ancient Greece to the present day, this title argues that our attempts to imagine freedom should occupy the space of not only what is but also what if.

Common Places by Svetlana Boym Common Places, Paperback (April 1995)

Alternating analysis with personal accounts of Russian life, this text on the "real Russia" conveys the foreignness of the nation and examines peculiar conceptions of private life and common good, of "culture" and "trash", of sincerity and banality.
