Wool-Gathering or How I Ended Analysis is a personal and humorous account of the last month of personal psychoanalysis, principally Lacanian in orientation, taking place in a frenetic and strikebound Paris. A diary account, interspersed with a commentary on the analysis, Wool-Gathering is not only a highly entertaining memoir, but also a more academic account of a process, opening up a world normally kept private in a new and engaging way.

Stalin's reign of terror was not all doom and gloom, much of it was (meant to be) funny! From comedy films to satirical theatre, from caricature to court speeches, and from Stalin's own writings to bawdy folk songs, humour pervaded the popular culture of the USSR. Until now, conventional wisdom has held that humour was a hallmark of the subversive, but in State Laughter Dobrenko and Jonsson-Skradol do away with that notion. Instead, tracing the development of official humour, satire, and comedy from the revolution through to the 1950s, they explore how and why laughter was a core component of the survival of the Soviet regime. Grounded in Soviet intellectual and cultural history, State Laughter offers the first comprehensive analysis of state-sponsored popular culture in Stalin's Soviet Union.
