Russian society is gradually losing control over the factors that create and spread risk, as environmental policy-making that is aimed to reduce it is commonly seen to threaten the modernization of Russian economic and social life. The author argues that hostility toward the green movement is thus woven into the social fabric of modern Russian society. In response, the Green movement is becoming less rooted in The book is based on case studies conducted in 1989-98 in six regions of Russia, as well as on a comparative examination of environmental NGOs in Russia, Ukraine and Estonia. Direct evidence of the impact of Russia's risk society on its Green politics is drawn from extensive in-depth interviews and complemented by archival studies and analyses of official and personal documents with a focus on the relationships between the environmental movement, industrial and institutional power structures, the scient Written by the foremost environmental sociologist in Russia today, this book contains important insights for the scholarly community of environmental sociologists, as well as for policy-makers and environmental activists.
