Suzanne Hohler demonstrates how fascist involvement in local civil society increasingly determined public opinion.
Suzanne Hohler is Assistant Professor of History at Heidelburg University, Germany. She has won several scholarships for her work on this period and is an expert on Russian fascism.
"this book contributes to an important part of history that is often overlooked--the public discourse and daily life of a city not only at the forefront of historical and political transformation, but also at the meeting point of cultures, ideologies and politics. Through her unique perspective, the author not only adds detail to the history of the city, but also to Jewish history, Russian history and the history of fascism. Harbin is an exceptional place of interwoven cultural and historical narratives. This book plucks one of these narrative threads and unravels a complex society at a key historical juncture."--Europe-Asia Studies
