About this book


Perestroika has led to more openness than ever before about Soviet social problems, and it has accelerated the processes of demographic and social change. In this collection a group of leading British, European and North American specialists analyse the central features of a changing society, concentrating upon mortality patterns in the population itself and upon the social problems that have been brought to the fore by glasnost, such as drugs and alcohol abuse.
