The Description for this book, When Russia Learned to Read: Literacy and Popular Literature, 1861-1917, will be forthcoming. Jeffrey Brooks's erudite and fascinating study traces the history of the popular books that entertained and instructed, reflected, and helped shape the values of millions of newly literate Russians, particularly during the last three decades of the Romanov empire.

Jeffrey Brooks brings out the characteristically Russian aspect of the nation's popular writing as he ranges through chapbooks, detective stories, newspaper serials, and women's fiction, tracing the emergence of secular, rational, and cosmopolitan values along with newly minted notions of individual initiative and talent. He shows how crude popular tales and serials of the era find their echoes in the literary themes of Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and other great Russian writers, as well as in the current renaissance of Russian detective stories and thrillers.
