9780813376905: Soviet Social Problems (John M. Olin Critical Issues Series)

As a result of glasnost attention has recently been focused on social problems in the USSR. This book analyzes the broad range of social concerns now confronting Gorbachev, including drug and alcohol abuse, nuclear and environmental calamities, poverty, prostitution, health, education and family issues, crime and juvenile delinquency and the difficulty of adapting to technological change. The authors compare and contrast these social concerns with those of other industrial societies and offer a wide-ranging perspective on the internal problems facing the progressive Soviet leadership.
