Synopsis: Prostitution in Imperial Russia was so tenacious that it survived not only the tsarist regime's most tumultuous years but the Bolshevik revolution itself. Laurie Bernstein's comprehensive study is the first to look at how the state and society responded to the issue of prostitution—the attitudes of prostitutes themselves, state regulation, societal reactions, and attempts at reform. She finds that prostitution and its regulation were integral to Russia's structures of gender, class, and politics.
The first historian from outside the former Soviet Union to be granted access to these archival materials on prostitution, Bernstein takes the reader to the streets of Russia's cities, to the state-licensed brothels, medical clinics, hospital wards, halfway houses for "fallen women," and to the highest circles of the tsarist administration.
From the Inside Flap:
"This excellent treatment of Russian prostitution during the late tsarist era . . . expands our growing knowledge of the dark side of Russian society."—David Ransel, author of Mothers of Misery: Child Abandonment in Russia
"This book will contribute significantly to our understanding of late Imperial Russian history. Not only does it constitute the first comprehensive treatment of the phenomenon of prostitution in the Russian empire during this period, but it uses this phenomenon to illuminate a number of important issues that have concerned scholars over the past several years."—William G. Wagner, author of Marriage, Property, and Law in Late Imperial Russia
