From the Publisher

"With in-depth field surveys, rich historical contextualization, and cultural assessments, this book shines a light on issues that have received little attention in Western publications. Citizens of the former Soviet Union give voice to environmental issues and their interrelation to ethnic conflicts, nationalism,criminality, and other issues. This book convincingly shows how environmental issues and their solutions are critically tied to other factors." Walter Richmond , German, Russian, and Classical Studies, Occidental College
