Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Before the present century, Russian attitudes toward sex tended to present a bewildering mix of cultural values, tabops, and practices. As the 19th century neared its end, and an increasingly restive intelligentsia— broadly interpreted—quickened and deepened the search for liberating new codes and mythologies, there occurred at once an awakening and a retreat in the understanding and articulation of attitudes toward sex and gender. Professor Engelstein brings her immense erudition and sensitivity to play in this stunning, path-breaking work." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
