Editorial Reviews

Review

"The collection is varied and amazingly rich in detail and analysis; even those who are well-versed in the literature of women in the post-Soviet economy and society will find much new and exciting material here. It is absolutely required reading for any researcher or student of the post-Soviet world." Choice

"All those interested in the ongoing transformations in Eastern Europe will find this book illuminating and thought provoking. It is highly recommended to specialists, students, and the general reader." Historian

"...this is a volume that students of Eurasian history and culture, as well as those engaged in a critique of the modernist assumptions about women and development will find useful as a springboard for exploring the dimensions of the relationship between social change and social relations." Azade-Ayse Rorlich, Slavic Review

"This collection's goal of portaying women more as actors than victims in their society is admirably achieved." Journal of Ukrainian Studies

"Post-Soviet Women is a valuable collection. It contains much important information for scholars about the lives of women and the societies in general that emerged after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The book is also a solid contribution to the study of women world-wide because it presents the opinions of women who often question and/or reject Western notions of feminism. The volume forces readers to re-examine their own biases and opinions about the Baltics, Central Asia and Russia." Canadian Slavonic Papers, Alison Rowley, Duke University

"All those interested in the ongoing transformations in Eastern Europe will find this book illuminating and thought provoking. It is highly recommended to specialists, students and the general reader." The Historian

Book Description

How have women's lives changed in the republics of the former Soviet Union since the fall of the USSR? This is the first book systematically to examine changes and continuities across these states, focusing on women and work, social roles and women in politics. Drawing on interviews with women in factories, on farms and with women streetsellers, politicians and activists, the book questions whether women are 'victims' or 'agents' of change, and describes various strategies of coping and adaptation to new economic and social instabilities.
