This study examines the significant changes that have occurred in the genre of Russian satire in terms of its structure, narratology and thematics during the period of "Glasnost". It demonstrates that the feuilletonist's position has changed decisively from that of an advocate of the status quo to an antagonist of the Soviet state, the Party and the official economic apparatus. A lengthy introduction examines the development of the journalistic feuilleton in Russia from its origins in the 18th century through the Soviet period. Feuilletonists whose works are analyzed in depth are Leonid Likhodeev, Lev Novozhenov, Eduard Grafov, Marina Lebedeva, Leonid Treer and Iurii Makarov. The work closes with an appendix of annotated and translated examples which should make the text accessible to scholars in related fields.
