“There are different ways to write a survey of Russian history, and most of them have been tried many times. Yet Simon Dixon, the editor of this excellent three-volume series, has invited his authors to do something new.” (Slavonic and East European Review, 1 April 2012)
"The real strength of this book lies in its quality as an extended interpretive essay ... .Graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and non-Russianist historians. It is they who have the most cause to welcome the publication of this excellent book, and to look forward to the remaining volumes in the Blackwell History of Russia series" (Reviews in History, March 2009)
“Wirtschafter's detailed descriptions and analysis, particularly of the Muscovite and Petrine periods, make this an excellent source for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. The addition of an inclusive introduction and conclusion would have made the book more accessible to a general audience.” (CHOICE, February 2009)"Russia’s Age of Serfdom brings together an enormous volume of recent research and distills it in a way that is at once elegantly written and deeply informative. Wirtschafter’s chapters on institutional and social history are among the clearest and most compelling assessments of the dynamics of Russian society that I have ever seen. Her book will be appreciated by specialists and students alike."
