This collection of essays examines women in the Krushchev era, using both newly-accessible archival material and a re-reading of published sources. Exploring diverse subjects including housing, space flight, women workers, cinema, religion and consumption, the volume places the analysis of specific events or issues within a broader discussion of economic, political, ideological and international developments to provide a full analysis of the era.

'This collection vividly illustrates these fortunes in 11 well integrated chapters that offer a fascinating introduction to the subject'. - Dan Healey, European History Quarterly



'These eleven tightly argued chapters go a considerable way to remedy the neglect of both women's experience and the gendered nature of Khrushchev's rule. It is an admirably coherent collection which should encourage further research.' - Jane McDermid, The Slavonic and East European Review
