"this 220-page volume, whose contributors are all senior historians".
Good to see Stalinist elitism is still alive. We wouldn't want any junior riff-raff shouting their mouths off.

I guess it is partly academic elitism as much as Stalinist elitism (always a nice fusion), but yep, fair point. I haven't seen the actual volume yet myself, though by the list of contents it does look like it will be quite interesting.
