The Known Citizen A History of Privacy in Modern America Sarah E. Igo “A mighty effort to tell the story of modern America as a story of anxieties about privacy… Igo is an intelligent interpreter of the facts… She shows us that although we may feel that the threat to privacy today is unprecedented, every generation has felt that way since the introduction of the postcard.” —The New Yorker


The War Within Diaries from the Siege of Leningrad Alexis Peri Winner of The Pushkin House Russian Book Prize 2018 “A remarkable record of 125 unpublished diaries written by the blokadniki who endured the 872-day siege of Leningrad from 1941-44…. Much has been written about Leningrad’s heroic resistance. But the remarkable aspect of the Boston University professor’s book is that she tells a very different story: recounting the internal struggles of ordinary people desperately trying to survive and make sense of their fate.” —Financial Times
