Klugman, Jeni & Motivans, Albert (2001). Single parents and child welfare in the new Russia. New York: Palgrave.


With the transition to a market economy, a rising number of single parent families in Russia are being placed under an intensified threat of poverty. Single Parents and Child Welfare in the New Russia provides new evidence and analysis of the effects of this phenomenon of child welfare and assesses the social policy responses of the Russian government. The authors emphasize the urgent need for detailed country-level analysis of the situation at a time of great change and increased risk.
