The Russian Peasantry, 1600-1930 : The World the Peasants Made, Paperback

The Russian Peasantry, 1600-1930 : The World the Peasants Made Paperback



This impressive work, set to become the standard history on the subject, offers a definitive survey of peasant society in Russia, from the consolidation of serfdom and tsarist autocracy in the 17th century through to the destruction of the peasant's traditional world under Stalin.

Over three-quarters of Russian society were peasants in these years, and David Moon explores all aspects of their life xxx; including the rural economy, peasant households, village communities xxx; and their political role, including protest against the landowning elites.

In the process he presents a fresh perspective on the history of Russia itself.

A big book in every way xxx; and compellingly readable.
