Media reviews
The author has put together an excellent textbook on Russia's new geography. I can, without hesitation, recommend this book for students of the Russian realm. Olga Medvedkov, Wittenberg University, Ohio 'Now, we have a single author book which brings together the research of systematic specialists into a coherent whole which interprets the rapidly changing world of the Russian Federation for an undergraduate audience...and reminds Russian specialists that there is a geographical element to the "transition" and geographers that the post-communist world is a rich field for geographical wnquiry.' Dr. Judith Pallot, School of Geography, University of Oxford.
