CFP of the Revue d'Histoire des Sciences Humaines for the special issue "Social and Human Sciences in the Soviet Union" (ENG and FR)

As a follow-up to the thematic issue "Sociology Behind the Iron Curtain" published by RHSH in 2007, this project aims to revisit the history of the social sciences and humanities (SSH) in the Soviet Union, against the simplistic clichés that have long considered them as an exceptional case, cut-off from the history of modernity in the 20th century.

Article proposals (3000 characters maximum), in English, French or Russian, should be sent before April 15, 2019 to the following addresses: adrhsh@gmail.comolessia@kirtchik.com; isabelle_gouarne@hotmail.com

Re: Patricia Roberts-Miller's question:

There are two possible ways of reconciling the "we could have won" narratives with the problem of China. One is to assume that China would not actually have fought the United States to defend North Vietnam, so the Americans were actually free to do as they pleased in Vietnam without serious risk of triggering a war with China. See for example Mark Moyar, Triumph Forsaken, pp. 320-21 and 500-501, for comments along these lines on Chinese policy in the period 1964-65.
