E. Thomas Ewing is Associate Professor of History at Virginia Tech and author of The Teachers of Stalinism.
"A very important study of policy-making and popular political participation in the Soviet Union. Ewing reads well "between the lines" to note how the "success" of girls' schools revealed how girls had been shortchanged in coeducational settings, even though girls also expressed stronger opposition to separation than did boys."-- James Albisetti, University of Kentucky
"Relying on an impressive range of original sources, Ewing's study is the first to examine the implementation of separate education in 1943, the growing opposition to it, and the reasons for a return to coeducation in 1954. Separate Schools confronts multiple issues critical to an understanding of Soviet history as well as of education and gender."-- Larry E. Holmes, University of South Alabama
