Description - Health and Social Change in Russia and Eastern Europe by William C. Cockerham
For the first time, life expectancy is declining in an industrialized society at the end of the 1990s. This work examines the social causes of the decline in life expectancy beginning in the 1960s in the former Soviet Union: Russia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and East Germany. It argues that the roots of this change are mainly social rather than biomedical - the result of poor policy decisions, stress and an unhealthy diet. The text presents a theory of postmodern social change that goes beyond the borders of Eastern Europe.
