Environmental devastation, a significant consequence of industrial activity in Soviet times, continues to be a major problem in Russia. Specific problems include radioactive pollutants from inadequately monitored nuclear plants, illegal logging and wildlife poaching which have grown into hugely profitable businesses for criminal gangs, and toxic waste from unsanctioned and poorly controlled metallurgical, petroleum and agricultural chemical industries. This book presents a wide ranging assessment of the environmental problems faced by Russia and of the crime and corruption which contribute to them. It also discusses the attitude of the Russian government which seems to view environmental protection as something for rich countries, something to be postponed until Russia is on the same economic footing as wealthier Scandinavian and western European countries. It concludes, gloomily, that the problems are getting worse and that little is being done to tackle them.

Review:

"The book does make a valuable contribution in bringing together work from Russian experts and making it available to a wider audience. The technical detail means that the collection will be of interest to readers seeking to gain a greater understanding of the extent of key environmental problems and their management in Russia." THOMAS O’BRIEN Cranfield University at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom

"...taken as a whole, the empirical chapters are indicative of widespread and somewhat convoluted corrupt activities with respect to certain natural resources, intensified by the accidental infringement of environmental legislation in some cases. As such, they provide a useful basis for future work in this area." Jonathan D. Oldfield, University of Birmingham
