Russia: The Land
This new revised edition of Russia: the Land takes a fresh look at this country's transformation over the past century. Russia's recent economic growth has had an impact on the environment and on the ways of life of its peoples. New topics include: the efforts to keep Lake Baikal--a cultural and geographical landmark--clean in an environment threatened by pollution, and the new Russian space program which earns money from space tourism.
