The resurgence of national and historical awareness among the people of what was once the USSR has been nowhere stronger than among the Russians themselves. Some of the larger projects of rediscovery amount to a reinterpretation of traditional culture. This carefully annotated collection of recent studies of Russian folk religion, village organization and family life, including the rituals associated with childbirth, special attention to women's roles and to the specificity of Siberia in Russian culture, will be a revelation to a wide array of readers. It is intended for use not only in anthropology departments but more widely interdisciplinary courses in Russian studies, peasant studies and women's studies.

Many Russian women of the late 19th and early 20th centuries tried to find authentic religious, marital, professional, and political experiences. Some very remarkable ones found these things in varying degrees, while others sought unsuccessfully but no less desperately to transcend the generations-old restrictions imposed by church, state, village, class, and gender. Like a Slavic Downton Abbey, this book tells the stories, not just of their outward lives, but of their hearts and minds, their voices and dreams, their amazing accomplishments against overwhelming odds, and their roles as feminists and avant-gardists in shaping modern Russia and, indeed, the twentieth century in the West. In their own words and images, and each in their own unique way, these remarkable Russian women construct a fascinating tapestry of a culture at the crossroads of modernity and on the brink of catastrophe.

Profane Challenge and Orthodox Response in Dostoevsky¿s Crime and Punishment presents for the first time an examination of this great novel as a work aimed at winning back ¿target readers¿, young contemporary radicals, from Utilitarianism, nihilism, and Utopian Socialism. Dostoevsky framed the battle in the context of the Orthodox Church and oral tradition versus the West. He relied on knowledge of the Gospels as text received orally, forcing readers to react emotionally, not rationally, and thus undermining the very basis of his opponents¿ arguments. Dostoevsky saves Raskol¿nikov, underscoring the inadequacy of rational thought and reminding his readers of a heritage discarded at their peril. This volume should be of special interest to secondary and university students, as well as to readers interested in literature, particularly, in Russian literature, and Dostoevsky. Janet Tucker is Professor of Russian Language and Literature at the University of Arkansas. She is the author of Innokentij Annenskij and the Acmeist Doctrine and Revolution Betrayed: Jurij Ole¿a¿s Envy. She is also the editor of Against the Grain: Parody, Satire and Intertextuality in Russian Literature. In addition, she has contributed chapters in books, with pieces on Nikolai Gogol, Jurij Ole¿a and Isaak Babel. Her articles include a study of Aleksandr Pushkin¿s Eugene Onegin, an essay on Varlam Shalamov, and a recent article plus a book chapter on Nikolai Gogol.
