About this product
- DescriptionIn Russian culture, the archetypal mother is ble and self-sacrificing. In <em>Women with a Thirst for Destruction</em>, however, Jenny Kaminer shows how this image is destabilized during periods of dramatic rupture in Russian society, examining in detail the aftermath of three key moments in the country's history: the emancipation of the serfs in 1861, the Russian Revolution of 1917, and the fall of the Communist regime in 1991. She explores works both familiar and relatively unexamined: Leo Tolstoy's <em>Anna Karenina</em>, Mikhail Saltykov-Shchedrin's <em>The Golovlev Family</em>, Fyodor Gladkov's <em>Cement</em>, and Liudmila Petrushevskaia's <em>The Time: Night</em>, as well as a late Soviet film (Vyacheslav Krishtofovich's <em>Adam's Rib</em>, 1990) and media coverage of the Chechen conflict. Kaminer's book speaks broadly to the mutability of seemingly established cultural rms in the face of political and social upheaval.
