Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Synthesizing several decades of scholarship by historians East and West, Barbara Evans Clements traces the major developments in the history of women inRussia and their impact on the history of the nation. Sketching lived experiencesacross the centuries, she demonstrates the key roles that women played in shapingRussia's political, economic, social, and cultural development for over amillennium. The story Clements tells is one of hardship and endurance, but also oneof achievement by women who, for example, promoted the conversion to Christianity, governed estates, created great art, rebelled against the government, establishedcharities, built the tanks that rolled into Berlin in 1945, and flew the planes thatstrafed the retreating Wehrmacht. This daunting and complex history is presented inan engaging survey that integrates this scholarship into the field of Russian andpost-Soviet history.
