A. Ya. Kodintsev. Historiography of labor crimes in the USSR in the 1930–1950s // Petersburg historical journal, no. 3, 2022, pp. 90–109
The history of labor crimes has a relatively large number of publications. They can be divided into two periods. The first covers the Soviet period. Research of that time was distinguished by strict adherence to the legal issues of the application of criminal legislation on labor crimes. All other questions were excluded from the objects of study. At the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, scientists, as it were, approached the study of labor crime. An obstacle to the study was the huge volume of documents on the problem to be analyzed. The second period consists of modern works, and since 2008 one can notice a rapid increase in the number of studies on the problems of labor offenses in the Soviet state. The quality, depth and scope of work in this area is rapidly increasing. In our work, we cover the historiography of labor crimes committed in the USSR in the 1930s–1950s.
