Russia's Women Accommodation, Resistance, Transformation

Clements, Barbara Evans & Engel, Barbara Alpern & Worobec, Christine D.
A very nice bright copy in original dust-wrapper.; Collection of essays which challenge a host of traditional assumptions by integrating women into the Russian past. By ignoring gender issues, historians have failed to understand how efforts to control women--and women's reactions to these efforts--have shaped political and social institutions and thus influenced the course of Russian and Soviet history. These original essays challenge a host of traditional assumptions by integrating women into the Russian past. Using recent advances in the study of gender, the family, class, and the status of women, the authors examine various roles of Russian women and offer a broad overview of a vibrant and growing field.
