Stalin's Last Generation

Juliane Fürst

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the youth's consumption of film, music, and fashion, examining non-conformist rather than integrative practices. It highlights the existence among the young of multiple notions of Sovietness, some of which — at times unconsciously — challenged official norms and expectations. While nascent Soviet subcultures caused indignation and a mild moral panic, true concern was reserved for juvenile crime.

Keywords:   Soviet Union, juvenile delinquency, juvenile crime, morals, post-war period, youth, young people
