Slavica Publishers and the RGWR Editorial Team are pleased to announce the impending arrival of Volume Three in the RGWR series. Titled, Russia’s Home Front in War & Revolution, 1914-22, the two-book volume focuses on the daily lives of ordinary citizens during the Empire’s 1914-1922 “continuum of crisis.” Among the subjects addressed in the Volume’s more than two-dozen entries are essays examining the political mobilization of the populace in the provinces and capitals; migration, emigration, and wartime demographic trends; the lived experience of peasants, soldiers, women, and children; the economic transformations of cities and the countryside; and the personal strategies employed to survive widespread violence, crime, and the disintegration of society.
Book 1: Russia’s Revolution in Regional Perspective (Sarah Babcock, Ludmila G. Novikova, and Asron B. Retish, eds.) will arrive this November.
Book 2: The Experience of War and Revolution (Adele Lindenmeyr, Christopher Read, and Peter Waldron, eds.) will appear before the end of 2015.
