Summary In 1992 Deborah Adelman returned to Moscow to meet once again with the young people who told their stories in The "Children of Perestroika." During the intervening three years, the teens had experienced not only major social and political upheavals, but also important changes in their personal lives: the death of a parent; love, marriage, and the prospect of children; for some, the beginning of a higher education; for others, military service and entry into a rapidly changing world of work. In this new book of interviews, the teens describe the trials and tribulations of their first years of adult life - the decisions they have made, and the hand that fate has dealt them and their families, in the chaotic and uncertain world of post-Soviet Russia
