In these original essays on long-term patterns of everyday life in prerevolutionary, Soviet, and contemporary Russia, distinguished scholars survey the cultural practices, power relations, and behaviors that characterized daily existence for Russians through the post-Soviet present. Microanalyses and transnational perspectives shed new light on the formation and elaboration of gender, ethnicity, class, nationalism, and subjectivity. Changes in consumption and communication patterns, the restructuring of familial and social relations, systems of cultural meanings, and evolving practices in the home, at the workplace, and at sites of leisure are among the topics explored.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[T]his book is a must-read for any scholar engaging with Russian culture. It explores many unfamiliar facets of everyday Russia and reveals new, unexpected angles of familiar topics. * The Russian Review *
Everyday Life in Russia Past and Present is an excellent and ambitious edited collection . . . . The authors . . . are some of the best in the field and their contributions challenge and expand our understanding of the concept of everyday life as lived in prerevolutionary, Soviet, and contemporary Russia. * Canadian Slavonic Papers *
Everyday Life in Russia Past and Present . . . offers readers a richly theoretical and empirical consideration of the 'state of play' of everyday life as it applies to the interdisciplinary study of Russia. * Slavic Review *
Volumes of such diversity frequently miss the mark, but this one represents a welcomed introduction to and a 'must' read for anyone seriously interested in the subject. * Cahiers du Monde russe *
An engaging look at a vibrant area of research. . . . Highly recommended. * Choice *
