Description: <890> microfiches

The newspapers document mass culture in Imperial Russia and include writings on social questions, tabloid sensationalism and popular fiction. The success of the kopeck newspapers of St. Petersburg and Moscow before and during the First World War represents the culmination of a reading revolution that reshaped urban Russians' understanding of every aspect of life, from gender relations and national identity to the role of literature and the arts in society. The collection consists of complete runs of the kopeck (penny) newspapers, the most widely circulated newspapers in the beginning of the twentieth century, published under various titles in St. Petersburg / Petrograd (1908-1918) and also in Moscow (1909-1918).

Part of the series Mass Media in Russia, 1908-1918 .
