    DescriptionThe Russian science establishment was one of the largest in the world, boasting many Nobel prizes, a world-leading space programme, and famous schools in mathematics, physics, and other fields. However, when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the major financial supports for the scientific community were eliminated, with a resulting 'brain drain.' The subsequent expansion of capitalism and globalization revealed that Russian science was ill adapted to compete with other countries in high technology. "Science in the New Russia" tells the dramatic story of the near collapse of Russian science in the mid-1990s and of subsequent domestic and international efforts to reform and re-energize scientific activity in Russia.
