Summary
Bringing together recent scholarship on Russian peasant women's history from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, this book covers such topics as family life in the countryside, woman's work, her sexuality, her marital and family positions, her experience of the Bolshevik Revolution, and her role in collectivization of agriculture from its onset in the Stalin years through the Gorbachev era. Placing the peasant woman within the context of the peasant household and integrating, rather than separating out, the female experience in Russian rural society, these essays contribute to a greater understanding of the development of Russian peasant society as a whole. A pioneering work of social history, this collection is essential for all interested in Russian and women's history.--
