Russia's Changing Tides 
Moscow, Russia. 1996 - On warm summer weekends, many Muscovites can be seen to flock to the parks, often just in order to read a book in a peaceful environment.

The city has cut maintenance and policing, turning the management of one park over to ultranationalists, who patrol in paramilitary uniforms.
