This is the first comprehensive, multidisciplinary, and multilingual bibliography on women and gender in East Central Europe and the Balkans (Vol. I) and the lands of the former Soviet Union (Vol. II) over the past millennium. Coverage encompasses the relevant territories of the Russian, Hapsburg, and Ottoman empires, Germany and Greece, and the Jewish and Roma diasporas. Topics range from legal status and marital customs to economic participation and gender roles, plus unparalleled documentation of women writers and artists, and autobiographical works of all kinds. The volumes include approximately 30,000 bibliographic entries on works published through the end of 2000, as well as web sites and unpublished dissertations. Many of the individual entries are annotated with brief descriptions of major works and the tables of contents for collections and anthologies. Entries are cross referenced and each volume includes indexes.
