Environmental Resources and Constraints in the Former Soviet Republics

Synopsis

The rapid changes in the former Soviet Union have rendered most pre-1992 works on its environment obsolete. A more specifically geographic approach that highlights the particular situation in each republic and region is offered by Philip R. Pryde's new work, Environmental Resources and Constraints in the Former Soviet Republics. Focusing broadly on environmental systems, infrastructures, and problems, the book also surveys each republic's physical geography, ethnography, resources, history, economic bases, and future needs and potential. The environmental legacies of the Soviet period are outlined, and current trends are explored. The volume is well illustrated and includes many maps reflecting the most recent changes in place-names. For its concise overview of the geographic environment in the post-Soviet republics, this book will be valued as a guide and reference by scholars, students, and professionals.
