More About This Title Russia Between Yesterday and Tomorrow


Russia's transformation from a Communist society to a free-market system is exposed through the eyes of ordinary Russians—young, old, urban, rural, workers, professionals, artists, businesspeople, soldiers, the Mafia, scientists, students, and dropouts. Captured here are the changes that Russia experienced as it entered a stage of radical transformation in the early 1990s, as well as the frustration, apathy, and cynicism that a new generation still feels 10 years later. This new edition includes comments on the concerns of Russia's youth, the Internet, and Russia's adaptation to the free-market economy. This replaces 1550650610.
