                Review:  "This timely and thorough reference collection is an essential guide to gender studies scholarship

                on postcommunist Europe and Eurasia. The editors gathered the highest caliber experts in the field to         

                explicate the debates on gender in this diverse region, and to examine key topics, from methodology, to 

                ideology, to intriguing empirical research on women’s organizing, everyday life, and gender-related policy   

                before, during and after communist party rule. This engaging and comprehensive volume will be indispensible

                for anyone undertaking research on gender in the region, whether a novice or an advanced scholar long 

                steeped in the subject. Rather than applying an 'add women and stir' approach, the contributors examine

                the political, economic, social, cultural and legal systems that create and enforce gender norms, revealing 

                the ineluctable centrality of gender to our understanding of politics."
