'While each article addresses different theoretical approaches, and strives to answer dissimilar questions, they are unified by the book's mission, and the collection as a whole manages to create an illuminating overall picture of the development of Russian/Soviet/post-Soviet ekranizatsii...This collection is a perceptive overview and a great reference book--for the curious general reader as well as for the specialist--which can be used as a textbook for a course on Russian literature and cinema, as an insightful addition to a course on Socialist Realism, or as a source for anyone interested in Soviet and Post-Soviet culture."-Slavic and East European Journal, 50.2 (Summer 2006)
'This volume contains thorough studies, which in their entirety do justice to the editor's claim of providing a general overview, as set out in the introduction.'
- MLR, 102.1, 2007
'The contributors develop useful paradigms for every decade and illustrate them with examples. These ten pages alone represent a comprehensive history of film adaptions, which illustrates the complex interaction between ideological premisses and a reassessment of the great writers of Russian and Soviet literature, as well as world literature.' - Christine Engel, University of Innsbruck
