As the first survey of the history of women in Russia to be published in any language, this book is itself an historic event -- the result of the collaboration of the leading Russian and American specialists on Russian women's history. The book is divided in to four chronological parts corresponding to eras of Russian history: (I) Kievan/Mongol (10th - 15th centuries); (II) Muscovite ( 16th - 17th centuries); (III) 18th century; and (IV) 19th - early 20th centuries.

Each part gives coverage to four main topics: (1) The role of prominent women in public life, with biographical sketches of women who attained prominence in political or cultural life; (2) Women's daily life and family roles; (3) Women's status under the law; (4) Material culture and in particular women's dress as an expression of their place in society.

From Library Journal:

To counter stereotypes held by Westerners about Russian women, researcher Pushkareva has written a history of women in her native country that spans the period from Kievan Rus to the fall of the Soviet Union. Although not totally successful in dispelling the notion of women's bleak existence in that part of the world, she does reveal many interesting aspects of the lives of her subjects. She emphasizes the power of the Russian Orthodox Church and peasant tradition in limiting female participation in society, and she highlights areas of achievement, particularly in the realm of property and judicial rights. Her work is strongest in its depiction of the pre-Moscovite period and weakest in its assessment of 20th-century society. Little space is given to specific women outside the elite class, and there is an overload of fashion description. The first published history of women in this region, this is recommended as an addition to public and academic libraries.?Rose Cichy, Osterhout Free Lib., Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
