Russia

University students in Moscow before and after perestroika
ByNina F. Talyzina, Gueorgui Emelianov, Anna Adaskina, Moscow State University

This study was conducted in Moscow by Professor Talyzina and her colleagues in 1989 and 1997, two years separated by major political events that changed Russia and the other former USSR republics irrevocably and that dramatically altered all phases of life in those countries. The first surveys were conducted in 1989, the year during which Eastern Europe threw off Soviet rule and less than two years before the Russians shattered the old Communist order in their own republic.
