Les photographies, les dessins et les textes publiés dans cet ouvrage font partie d'une collection de plus de trois mille tatouages recueillis patiemment par Danzig Baldaev, alors qu'il était surveillant de prison. Ces tatouages sont la portée vers un monde secret - une société très fermée dans laquelle Danzig Baldaev a joué un rôle d'ethnographe. les langages iconiques et tribaux qu'il nous donne à voir sont artistiques, repoussants, sexuellement explicites, parfois tout simplement étranges, mais ils reflètent dans tous les cas la vie et les rituels des détenus. Des crânes, des svastikas, des harems de femmes nues, des chevaliers médiévaux en armures, des poignards dégoulinants de sang, des images pieuses du Christ, des armées de chars d'assaut, et un Lénine cornu - autant de symboles par lesquels les êtres de ce monde secret se marquent et s'identifient.

The first English-language book to document the men who emerged from the gulags to become Russia's much-feared crime class: the vory v zakone Mark Galeotti is the go-to expert on organized crime in Russia, consulted by governments and police around the world. Now, Western readers can explore the fascinating history of the vory v zakone, a group that has survived and thrived amid the changes brought on by Stalinism, the Cold War, the Afghan War, and the end of the Soviet experiment. The vory--as the Russian mafia is also known--was born early in the twentieth century, largely in the Gulags and criminal camps, where they developed their unique culture. Identified by their signature tattoos, members abided by the thieves' code, a strict system that forbade all paid employment and cooperation with law enforcement and the state. Based on two decades of on-the-ground research, Galeotti's captivating study details the vory's journey to power from their early days to their adaptation to modern-day Russia's free-wheeling oligarchy and global opportunities beyond.

Something happened in the 1990s; a group of people who were perceived as radical and unmentionable were transformed into a group of people who deserved human rights, and, if you looked close enough, were normal, just like everybody else (John DOCOEmilio (2002). Had a post-gay era (Ghaziani, 2011) begun? And if so, how might this impact on the meaning of sexual identity and a political movement steeped in identity politics? Have the LGBT youth of today been duped into conformity because..."
