Mortality rose very dramatically in the former Soviet republics
following the collapse of the Soviet Union, with male life
expectancy falling by ten years, the biggest peace time fall in
life expectancy on record. This book presents the results of
extensive research into the full extent of this catastrophe and the
reasons for it. It explores in particular declining economic
conditions and their impact, showing how smoking, binge drinking,
inadequate, unhealthy diet, stress, homicides and suicides all
increased in this period. It covers a wide range of former Soviet
republics, including Central Asia, Belarus and Ukraine as well as
Russia, and demonstrates forcibly the connection between money,
health lifestyles, health, and happiness and well-being.
