The selections are drawn from a wide variety of sources, published and unpublished, including memoirs, diaries, legal codes, correspondence, short fiction, poetry, ethnographic observations, and folklore, with primacy given to sources produced by women and previously unavailable in English translation.Organised thematically, the documents focus on women's family life, work and schooling, public activism, creative self-expression, and sexuality and spirituality, as well as on the cultural ideals and legal framework which constrained women of all social classes. Introductions to chapters and to individual selections provide context for the sources and highlight both the continuities and changes that occurred in Russian women's lives over time. This compendium serves as a unique guide to the social, economic, political, and cultural history of women in Imperial Russia. The volume includes illustrations, a chronology, a glossary of Russian terms, a map, and a guide to further reading.
