Boris Gorshkov's works are definitely worth checking out as far as the Russian peasantry goes, especially his Peasants in Russia from Serfdom to Stalin. He's also edited a memoir of a Russian serf entitled A Life under Russian Serfdom: Memoirs of Savva Dmitrievich Purlevskii (1800-1868) (it's available from the publisher here).
