The gap between rich and poor widened. Now the boom is over, inequalities will multiply further. As well as explaining Russias economic trajectory, the book provides a unique account of the social movements that are working against an increasingly authoritarian government to change Russia for the better.This is the perfect introduction for undergraduates approaching Russia for the first time and those who wish to know how Russia will change during the economic crisis.
