About this book

From the romantic liaisons of Peter the Great to the birth of the Russian 'queen', this collection of essays presents recent research from the new field of Russian masculinity studies. Peasant patriarchs, aristocratic dandies, anxious young bureaucrats, workers in search of father figures, heroic warriors, promiscuous bathhouse attendants and vodka-soaked athletic stars populate this volume. Its essays take as a starting point the notion that masculinity, like femininity, has a history.

Reviews

'The sheer sweep of its scope and goals are at the root of this pathbreaking collection's accomplishments...' - Abby M. Schrader, Slavic Review

'...an extremely interesting study of a hugely important topic. An excellent example of historical scholarship in its own right, it should lay the foundation for further research into Russian, Soviet, and indeed post-Soviet masculinites.' - Graham H.Roberts, University of Surrey, Slavonica
