Helena Goscilo and Andrea Lanoux, eds. Gender and National Identity in Twentieth-Century Russian Culture. In the introduction, Goscilo and Lanoux assert that traditional Russian gender archetypes and the patriarchal assumptions on which they are based recur throughout twentieth-century Russian culture, despite the Bolsheviks’ intention to emancipate women and the apparent diversity of thought of the post-Soviet period. However, rather than provide a pointed feminist critique of patriarchy across Russian history, the volume raises several distinct sets of questions that reflect the interest of recent literature in masculinity and femininity as cultural constructs.

Dehexing Sex: Russian Womanhood During and After Glasnost, by Helena Goscilo (University of Michigan Press, 1996).
Gender and National Identity in Twentieth-Century Russian Culture offers fresh insights to students and scholars in the fields of gender studies, nationhood studies, and Russian history, literature, and culture. Dehexing Sex: Russian Womanhood During and After Glasnost, by Helena Goscilo (University of Michigan Press, 1996). Glasnost and the collapse of the Soviet Union revolutionized Russian society.
A striking Chagall-like cover masking and unmasking the naked truth about twentieth-century Russian notions of gender and national identity invites the reader into this book, which is ambitious in its sweep. Noting with dismay the invisibility of gender in most recent works on Russian nationalism and state formation, Helena Goscilo and Andrea Lanoux rightly argue that such a vital component of national identity cannot be ignored (p. 9). They contrast this gap with the extensive literature outside Slavic studies on the gendered division between the masculine state and the feminine nation.
Helena Goscilo, Andrea Lanoux. Combining concepts and methodologies from anthropology, history, linguistics, literature, music, cultural studies, and film studies, this collection of ten original essays addresses issues crucial to gender and national identity in Russia from the October Revolution of 1917 to the present. Collectively, these interdisciplinary essays explore how traditional gender inequities influenced the social processes of nation building in Russia and how men and women responded to those developments.
