Rural Inequality in Divided Russia, Hardback Book


This book examines economic and political polarisation in post-Soviet Russia, and in particular analyses the development of rural inequality.

It discusses how rural inequality has developed in post-Soviet Russia, and how it differs from the Soviet period, and goes on to look at the factors that affect rural stratification and inequality, using human and social capital, profession, gender, and village location as independent variables.

The book uses survey data from rural households and fieldwork in Russia in order to highlight the multiplicity of divisions that act as fault lines in contemporary rural Russia.
