Synopsis

Russia is more prosperous now than at any time in its history, with new wealth based on its rich natural resources. This new era of prosperity is reflected in Russia's capital city, Moscow. But uniting a vast and disparate population, tackling crime rates and finding political accord are some of the challenges that Russia faces if it is to continue to grow and develop as an economic power.

A high-end geography series that explores some of the fastest-developing countries and cities in the world and assesses how they are dealing with the challenges of the 21st century. Topics looked at include: population structure, the economy, environmental sustainability and the outlook for the future. Each title also features a closer look at an individual city within the country. Richly illustrated with photos, maps, case studies and graphs, this is an ideal read for globally conscious readers aged 11 and up.
