One of the few English language studies to focus on the male experiences, this book addresses the important questions raised by the rise and fall of the Soviet experiment in transforming gender relations. Issues covered include;
* the paternal role
* women as breadwinners
* men's loss of status at work
* changing gender roles in the press
* the relationship between the sexual and gender revoloutions.
Featuring an outstanding panel of Russian contributors, this collection is a valuable resource for students and scholars of Politics, Gender Studies and Russian Studies.
