Product Description


`"This book by Richard Stites stands out as the most comprehensive analytical study of Russian women in the century from Nicholas I to Stalin. Written with verve and wit, with enormous erudition and the highest scholarly standards, this dense survey sets out to investigate the origins of the woman question in the 1850s and 1860s, the rival responses of feminists, nihilists, and political radicals, the division of the women's movement into hostile feminist and socialist camps, and finally the results of the Bolshevik policies directed toward women in the postrevolutionary society. . . . The story told is a fascinating one and a necessary corrective to the essentially male-oriented accounts we have already of the populist, liberal, and Marxist movements."--Ronald Grigor Suny, The Review of Politics

"A remarkably sensitive, highly objective, many-sided discussion of the achievements of [this] movement. . . . Richard Stites has given us social history at its very best, one of those rare scholarly works capable of touching the hearts and minds of a wide audience of specialists and nonspecialists alike."--Roberta T. Manning, The Journal of Modern History

"Richard Stites's book is alive with events and individuals. It is a dramatic story well told, with understanding for reformers and revolutionaries, and a sensible, balanced assessment of their successes and failures."--Barbara Evans Clements, Journal of Social History

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable tool for the student of Russian History 27 Oct 2011
By telephonesnow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is well-written, magnificently researched, and stands at the top of the very few books written about Imperial Russian women. The scope makes it practical and the detail makes it perfect for research. The only other book that compares with this is Anna Hilyar and Jane McDermid's "Revolutionary Women in Russia, 1870-1917: A Collective Biography."
