“Finally, a geography of Russia written by a Russian geographer for a Western audience. This book is filled with mesmerizing details of Soviet and post-Soviet everyday life, as well as unique photographs. It captures the richness of Russian society and reflects its contradictions. This is an invaluable, accessible text for all levels, and will be great for stimulating classroom discussion.”

—Marianna Pavlovskaya, Department of Geography, Hunter College, City University of New York


“A timely, insightful, well-written, and engaging volume on contemporary Russia's economies, recent history, environmental settings, and enduring legacies. Personal reflections and observations add to the book's strengths. I will definitely use this text the next time I teach a class on the former Soviet Union. It is far ahead of any previous book on the region. It also will have broad appeal outside geography and should be required reading for business people and professionals in all fields who are working in the region.”

—Stanley D. Brunn, Department of Geography, University of Kentucky


“This text offers a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the physical, cultural, social, economic and political geography of the region. The book goes well beyond the bounds of a general geography text, giving students the historical and political context that will help them engage more thoughtfully with the material. The author doesn’t shy away from interjecting his own insights about the personalities that have shaped contemporary Russia. For the student, this brings to life some of the major actors whose names would otherwise get lost on the page. Each chapter is followed by review questions and exercises that will prepare both instructors and students for class discussion, making the book useful for both lecture courses and seminars.”

—Melinda Herrold-Menzies, Intercollegiate Environmental Analysis Program, The Claremont Colleges
