The South of Russia as the Object of Complex Socio-Political Analysis
This work is a review of ‘The Atlas of Socio-Political Problems, Threats and Risks of the South of Russia’, compiled by scientists of the Southern Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, under the supervision of Academician G.G.Matishov. As the author of the review points out, the research reviewed is characterized by systemic and complex quality of the presented analysis of the situation in the Southern federal district and in some neighbouring territories. The attempt made by the authors of the Atlas, to evaluate in its complexity and to present in the clearest and most visual form (i.e. graphically, too) the situation in the Southern federal district and neighbouring territories, is not only timely and useful for the scientific community, but also crucially important for political parties, deputies, managers, journalists, and for the public.
