|The Post-Soviet Handbook documents the
enormous variety of grassroots initiatives which have
emerged in seven nations formerly part of the USSR:
Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, and
Azerbaijan. It is the only guide of its kind, identifying
and describing the real architects and builders of
democratic progress across this vast and important regionfrom
the Independent Consumers Union in Azerbaijan to the
Center for Defense of Wild Nature in Vladivostok. Many of
the new entries represent projects based in provincial

Revised Edition, provides extensive contact information
for hundreds of independent associations, and describes
their principal programs and activities. This compendium
is an essential resource for scholars, policy makers,
business leaders, activists and anyone interested in
collaborative projects with these groups.
