9780691052540: The Women's Liberation Movement in Russia: Feminism, Nihilsm, and Bolshevism, 1860-1930


Richard Stites views the struggle for liberation of Russian women in the context of both nineteenth - century European feminism and twentieth-century communism. The central personalities, their vigorous exchange of ideas, the social and political events that marked the emerging ideal of emancipation--all come to life in this absorbing and dramatic account. The author's history begins with the feminist, nihilist, and populist impulses of the 1860s and 1870s, and leads to the social mobilization campaigns of the early Soviet period.

"Richard Stites has made a unique contribution. He has taken into account the entire published literature, and he offers a comprehensive interpretation. There are no other books on this subject of this scope in any language." --Cyril E. Black, Princeton University
