Russia's economy is booming. Six years of economic growth with an enormous increase of the gross domestic product, the enlargement of foreign portfolio investments as well as a permanent lowering inflation rate since 19981 reveal the ideal basis for potential foreign investors and their business activities in Russia.

The numbers of publications related to these topics have been increasing since the rise of Russia's popularity in the latest years. Some books deal with a broad overview, whereas other publications give an insight in a very specific topic. The book written by Isolde Brade, Arne Sünnemann and Michael Anz investigates Russia's socio-geographical and economic development since 1991. These issues enable a broad overview of current developments in Russia and its people.

Each chapter contains information to a specific issue: form of government and political subdivision, population, settlement structure, infrastructure, economy, social situation and ecology.

The authors provide all necessary information on a few pages (each chapter contains 10-20 pages) and enable an overall view without being too detailed. Brade, Siinnemann and Anz use lots of statistics, maps, charts and tables. …
