Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Engel, a professor of history at the University of Colorado, Boulder, presents this social history of marital life and the changing roles of women in late imperial Russia. Focusing on modernizing attitudes after the Great Reforms of 1861, the work examines the changes facing families in a time of rapid capitalist economic development and the effects of the adoption of European sensibilities by an emerging middle class. The research draws on primary source material, especially contemporary marriage and divorce proceedings and records. The volume includes several black and white illustrations and photographs.
