Professor Barbara Clements's Daughters of Revolution is a welcome corrective to the highly propagandized, government-controlled images of Soviet women cultivated during most of the seventy-four year history of the U.S.S.R. Enabling the reader to look at traditional historical issues through the prism of women's experience, Clements begins with the legacy of the nineteenth century and the revolution of 1917--one literally begun by women--and covers the long span of history up to the second revolution, in which women also figured prominently, the aborted August coup of 1991 that foreshadowed the end of the Soviet Union.
That she manages to make valid generalizations about a population so large, ethnically diverse, and geographically widespread--and in the process gracefully places the history of Soviet women within the larger context of European and world history--is a testament to Clements's ability as a writer, as well as a historian.
