My Working Women in Russia Under the Hunger Tsars recommended on Library of Congress website for readings about 1917

August 8th, 2018

What do you recommend reading for the centenary of the Russian Revolution?

I was delighted to find my book, Working Women in Russia Under the Hunger Tsars, was recommended on the Library of Congress website last year:

“This year there will be an outpouring of writings on the Russian Revolution – many of which will, unfortunately, downplay the role of ‘ordinary’ peasants and workers.

“Here’s a place to list readings that tell the real history of the revolution. What would libcommers recommend?

“To start us off, here’s some writings on the February Revolution – which began on 8 March, International Women’s Day, 1917:

“Choi Chatterjee, Celebrating Women; Gender, Festival, Culture and Bolshevik Ideology, p43-54.

“Temma Kaplan, ‘Women and Communal Strikes in the Crisis of 1917-1922’.

“Jane McDermid and Anna Hillyar, Midwives of the Revolution, especially p147-157.

“Anne Bobroff-Hajal, Working Women in Russia under the Hunger Tsars: political activism and daily life

“… Also check out https://socialhistories1917.wordpress.com/ for recordings of recent talks on the revolution.”
