I stumbled across these titles while skimming through the Reiter's website and wondered if anyone has used them for work. They seem to have a number of specialized dictionaries that could be useful if they're good. I couldn't find any reviews online; has anyone had the occasion to pick one up, and if so - what did you think?

"Zhivoy Yazyk" is a publishing house. What dictionaries i particular? I'm not sure they are compiled by the PH itself... but can be re-printed from some older and/or well-known sources.
E.g. many famous dictionaries (like Duden, NTC's, Longman) were (officially?) published by "Русский язык" Publishing house in the late 90-s.
