Soviet Economic Development from Lenin to Khrushchev

by

Soviet Economic Development from Lenin to Khrushchev Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides a comprehensive survey of Soviet economic development from 1917 to 1965 in the context of the prerevolutionary economy. In these years the Soviet Union was transformed from a predominantly agrarian country into a major industrial power. These developments resulted in great economic achievements at great human cost. Professor Davies discusses the inherent faults and strengths of the Soviet system, paying particular attention to the major controversies, and presents the results of recent Russian and Western research.

Synopsis:

In the course of the first half of the twentieth century, the USSR was transformed from a predominantly agrarian country into a major industrial power. This authoritative survey charts the bumpy Russian road to industrialisation and, using material from Russian archives opened since 1991, discusses the major controversies.

Synopsis:

Comprehensive survey of the transformation of the Soviet Union from a largely agrarian economy to a world superpower.
