Description
Siberia has been described as 'Russia's El Dorado'. Despite severe climatic and little-known region has recently played an increasingly important role in the Soviet Union's-and the world's-economy. This book draws on the expertise of specialists on Siberia from a variety of disciplines in both East and West to present an up-to-date examination of problems relating to the territory's social and economic development, past and present. It contains chapters on the history of Siberia's early exploration and colonization; on present-day communications, labor shortage, the oil and gas industries, problems of social planning and organization, and a whole section devoted to the condition of the non-Russian native peoples of Siberia. A final chapter raises the question of Siberia's place in Mikhail Gorbachev's plans for the economic reconstruction (perestroika) of the Soviet Union.
