In Slavic studies, I know of no dissertations or serious research, aside from archival releases, that would constitute new contributions, since the 1960s, on Trotsky, the Mensheviks, the series of anti-Bolshevik oppositions, Voronsky, Bordiga, Ciliga, Comintern history in general, the role of the defectors from the Bund to the Bolsheviks in Jewish politics, Muslims in Soviet society, thehistory of the Polish CP, the purge trials of 1936-38 (!), the work of Krleza, Vida, and other important Croatian writers, the role of the Bosnian Muslim ulema in opposing the anti-Serbian and anti-Jewish policies of the Ustasha regime, the Ustasha movement and regime in general, the role of Volksdeutsche in the Holocaust of the Jews in the Balkans, the post-1945 trials in Eastern Europe, the Romanian and Yugoslav surrealists, the fate of Slovak intellectuals like Vlado Clementis, the overall history of the Macedonian revolutionary movement, the fate of Albanian Catholic authors, the internal history of the Albanian Communist movement before 1945, the history of the leftopposition in Greece, the Greek revolution of 1944 and subsequent civil war, or Turkish and other Muslim minority issues in Bulgaria and Macedonia at the end of the Communist era. In this area I may somewhat overstate the case as I hope some of these topics have been dealt with but that work on them has not come to my attention. >> This "case" isn't "somewhat" overstated, it's positively "grossly" overstated. The American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies publishes a list of dissertations annually, which interested scholars should not hesitate to consult. If I were a Vegas bookmaker, I would peg the over/under at 100 for completed dissertations since the 1960s on these themes, off the top of my head. Tim Davenport Corvallis, OR
