In a useful reference on the geography of Russia and the former Soviet Republics, students can find information about the economic, social, and political influences that affect the world around them as it relates to this region. For a country with such power potential and geographical strength, Russia has struggled to regain its status as a great nation since the breakup of its socialist order. Russia and the Former Soviet Republics explores the geographic, historic, economic and international environment in which Russia is operating today, and it looks at important issues that Russia will face for years to come. Some of these issues include whether Russia will support the rise of the European Union or a new Chinese expansion; whether Russia will hold its own sphere of influence from the heart of Earth's greatest continent; and whether Russia can rebuild a system of government that will sustain the survival of its people. Although the old Soviet Union is scrambling to find its center through the debris of political and geographical crisis, its proximity and tradition keep the image of a greater Russia alive. In this one-volume reference, students and teachers of geography will come to know Russia and the Soviet Republics, from the inside out.
