Pressestimmen"The maps and biblography are very helpful. An excellent book... Highly recommended." --"CHOICE""" "To sum up, this is a cautiously written yet pioneering work dealing with the Russian--especially Siberian--economy, just before it burst recently with full force into international prominence. The authors warn that the situation, from both the political and economic viewpoint, is still fluid."-- "CHOICE"
