Igor Orlov , Alexey Popov

In Russian
Number of pages: 359
ISBN: 978-5-7598-1394-1
In this monograph, the institutional and procedural components, the volume and geography, and the specifi c forms of Soviet outbound (foreign) tourism in 1955–1991 are reconstructed on the basis of archive documents, published sources, Soviet, post-Soviet and foreign historiography. A neo-institutional approach allows the authors to show the dependence of both these parameters and the shadow practices of Soviet tourists abroad upon the essential principles which were the basis for the activities of tourism institutions responsible for organizing foreign tours for the Soviet citizens, as well as to discuss the ideological component of these tours in the context of the Cold War.

The book addresses specialists in the fi eld of the history of tourism and international relations, academics, students, postgraduates, and those interested in Soviet history.
