Description

This work shows that the collapse of socialist employment and social service systems - and of the USSR itself - has had profoundly damaging effects, manifested in dislocation and homelessness, ethnic strife, family breakdown, declining life expectancy, and soaring rates of violence and crime.

Table of Contents

This survey of the changes in education and socialization in the former USSR examines the institutions that are shaping the first post-Soviet generation. Chapters provide reports on such questions as diversification and the development of independent schools, curriculum reform and democratization.
