About this title


First-hand account of social activism and the politics of development in postsocialist Russia

From the Publisher:

"This is the detailed, careful, respectful study of the day-to-day problems of East-West exchange that we all crave to have. Hemment offers nuanced descriptions of the multiple contradictions for NGOs, which are asked to perform miracles and struggle heroically to bring gender justice to new democracies." --Ann Snitow, New School for Social Research, founder of the Network of East-West Women

"[A]ddresses issues crucial to our understanding of democracy, civic agency, and Western aid programs. It offers a coherent discussion of how gender and women's activism are shaped by-and can still transgress-the harsh reality of the post-communist 'brave new world.'" --Elena Gapova, Centre for Gender Studies, European Humanities University

"[A] beautifully constructed text that provides a vibrant account of how an action research approach can be enacted in a cross-cultural research context." --Hilary Pilkington, Professor of Sociology, University of Warwick
