About the Book Disintegration of Soviet Union not only led to the phenomenal socio-economic changes in the erstwhile USSR, but its aftershocks have rippled across whole East European satellite states also. Likewise, the entire Mongol social milieu underwent a transitional phase. Economic instability and transition to market economy brought with it financial insecurity which led to alcoholism, abuse and abandonment of children. The book provides a glimpse on the impact of this social structure transformation focusing especially on street children who are the result of this change. In recent times, the Mongolian government, which the help of international and domestic NGOs and the mining sector has played a significant role in controlling this social phenomenon, produces substantial positive results. The scholars, readers and policy planners having interest in the region may find the book useful. Printed Pages: 108
