MEDIA REVIEWS
"This sophisticated and stimulating book explores how the Soviet state deliberately engineered a distinctive "gender order" as part of its strategy for the consolidation of power and the transformation of Russian society, and how this order has in turn been transformed since 1991.."
-"P. Rutland, Wesleyan University
"The complex and original analysis of gender roles, and the attention to masculinity, will be of interest for both women's studies and Russian history programs."
-P.Rutland "Choice
