Soviet Economic Development from Lenin to Khrushchev (New Studies in Economic and Social History)by Robert William Davies
Synopses & Reviews
In the post-Revolution years between 1917-1965, the Soviet Union was transformed from a predominantly agrarian country into a major industrial power. Professor R.W. Davies discusses the inherent faults and strengths of the Soviet system and presents the results of recent Russian and Western research.
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.
Comprehensive survey of the transformation of the Soviet Union from a largely agrarian economy to a world superpower.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 85-91) and index.
