Serfdom and Social Control in Russia: Petrovskoe, a Village in Tambov Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book includes an excellent analysis of the material and demographic foundations of patriarchal society, which will force historians to reevaluate the profitability of the estate economy and the standard of living among Russian serfs....This is an important book which should be read by anyone interested in peasant studies and servile systems of production.

Book News Annotation:

A reissue of the 1986 original. Recreates life on a serf estate in 19th c. Russia. Hoch (history, U. of Iowa) raises important questions about authority, work, and social structure by focusing on the household as the center of serf life. He reaches the conclusion that the heads of three-generation serf households had a vested interest in preserving serfdom.
