    The first collection of Russian peasant writings to be published in English, this volume presents a selection from the thousands of letters written to - but never published by - Krestianskaia gazeta ('The Peasant Gazette'). Arranged chronologically and with introductions and commentary, the letters represent the uncensored voice of the peasantry responding to the issues that mattered to this vast section - 80% - of the Soviet population during a period of dramatic, and ultimately catastrophic, change in Russian rural life.
