Summary
"Small-Town Russia focuses on social change within three communities in different regions. All three towns have been hard hit by unemployment and falling real wages, private sectors are small and inhabitants have a sense of being marooned in the Soviet past, with the fruits or 'transition' reserved for neighbouring cities. The book examines the impact of these developments, asking, for example, what types of household are poor; how people survived when they were not paid for months on end; whether Russians have 'survival strategies' and, if so, how these are gendered."--Jacket
