Jeffrey Brooks brings out the characteristically Russian aspect of the nations popular writing as he ranges through chapbooks, detective stories, newspaper serials, and womens 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 the current renaissance of Russian detective stories and thrillers.
