Abstract

The traditional view of peasant society in imperial Russia has long emphasized social conformity. Peasants throughout Russia (who are all too often treated by historians as a culturally monolithic entity) are thought to have shared similar practices and norms, including, to name a few, communal land tenure and government, the equitable partition of resources among households, and the sexual division of labor within the household. Similarly, historians have assumed, on the basis of a small number of detailed local studies, a “peasant” demographic behavior, characterized by early and universal marriage and large, multigenerational households.
