"[A] well-researched and well-organized study that gives a close analysis of life-cycle rituals in twentieth-century urban Russia and provides 'evidence of different attitudes in the society toward what it means to be a member and what values are most important at a given juncture in history.' ... [Village Values] makes a considerable contribution to the discipline and provides a rich recourse for any student of Soviet/Russian culture and society." --Alexandra Kostina, "Journal of Folklore Research"
