Carrying Linda's Stones: An Anthology of Estonian Women's Life Stories

£29.99

Product description

From the back cover: This book is certain to play a positive role in the building of civil society in Estonia and in promoting understanding of the nature of Estonian life outside Estonia. I have been studying Baltic societies for more than 30 years, and never in that period have I been more enthusiastic in recommending a book. Paul A. Goble, former Special Advisor on Soviet Nationality Problems and Baltic Affairs, Department of State This anthology brings to life in a very person a way how history stormed into people's lives and subsequently shaped them. Consequently, these fifteen stories offer personal and intimate vignettes that history books often fail to reveal in their treatment of the "big picture". H. E. Alona Wos, US Ambassador to Estonia The voices of the strong-minded and determined women we hear in this anthology cannot fail to inspire us. Their struggles personal, public and political and the courage and strength with which they faced them are a model of triumph over adversity and a lesson for us all. Glenys Kinnock, Member of European Parliament, UK The volume is a welcome addition to the recently enhance mosaic of primary sources in the Russian and East European area as well as a useful contribution to the field of gender studies. Toivo Raun, Professor, Indiana University Estonia was frozen in by Soviet occupation with its pseudo-equality, which led to the notorious "double burden" and turned women's rights into a dirty word for many people. This anthology is a significant part of steps needed to make a dent into such attitudes. It would be a useful textbook in raising women's consciousness. Rain Taagepera, Professor, University of California, Irvine "Carrying Linda's Stones" presents an authentic and emotionally compelling record of women's struggles to survive WWII, occupations, deportations, exile, and the transition to restored independence. I can highly recommend it. Melissa Wells, former Ambassador to Estonia (less)
Cover slightly bent, but otherwise in good condition.
