Russia's forgotten world of avant-garde public signage--the latest in Fuel's collectible Soviet series For this volume, French photographer Jason Guilbeau has used Google Street View to virtually navigate Russia and the former USSR, searching for examples of a forgotten Soviet empire. The subjects of these unlikely photographs are incidental to the purpose of Google Street View--captured by serendipity, rather than design, they are accorded a common vernacular. Once found, Guilbeau strips the images of their practical use by removing the navigational markers, transforming them according to his own vision. From remote rural roadsides to densely populated cities, the photographs reveal traces of history in plain sight: a brutalist hammer and sickle stands in a remote field; a jet fighter is anchored to the ground by its concrete exhaust plume; a skeletal tractor sits on a cast-iron platform; a village sign resembles a constructivist sculpture. Passersby seem oblivious to these objects. Relinquished by the present they have become part of the composition of everyday life, too distant in time and too ubiquitous in nature to be recorded by anything other than an indiscriminate automaton. This collection of photographs portrays a surreal reality: it is a document of a vanishing era, captured by an omniscient technology that is continually deleting and replenishing itself--an inadvertent definition of Russia today.

The West is caught up in the dramatic changes taking place in the former Soviet Union, and is eager to help the process of democratization. This work cautions that what is taking place in the former Soviet Union is not democratization as the West knows it but, rather, a form of socialism different from Marxism-Leninism theoretically based on the teachings of an Italian Marxist (now deceased) Antonio Gramsci. The work claims that the same Party elite who controlled the Soviet Union now control the republics. The authors advise that, before granting financial credits to any of the republics, the West should first come to a clear understanding of the political and economic processes now taking place.

The city on the Neva has recently taken back its original name, St. Petersburg. The official strategies for the Tercentenary in 2003 saw the city's potential as being generated by its imperial past. In a series of scholarly essays the author examines the historical background to St. Petersburg's contemporary identifications. Framed mainly in romantic and nostalgic terms, they imprint an idealized Old Imperial Russia onto the post-Soviet city.
