Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents statistical data on social trends and conditions in Russia before and after the August 1991 coup attempt, arranged in tabular form and complemented with translated passages of the official sources, among which are monthly opinion surveys. Includes information only recently available on such matters as disease, causes of death, pollution, and crime. Some highlights that emerge are the ethnic diversity of the Russian Federation, regional and urban\rural variations, an alarming excess of deaths over births, and persistent inequalities between the sexes.
