Peasant Economy, Culture, and Politics of European Russia, 1800-1921
Edited by Esther Kingston-Mann & Timothy Mixter


This collection of original essays provides a rare in-depth look at peasant life in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century European Russia. It is the first English-language text to deal extensively with peasant women and patriarchy; the role of magic, healing, and medicine in village life; communal economic innovation; rural poverty and labor migration from the village perspective; the agricultural hiring market as workers' turf; and the regional components of the late nineteenth-century agrarian crisis.

First published in 1991.
