About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Authoritative presentation of the major controversies
    • Uses material from Russian archives opened since 1991
    • Clear presentation in non-technical terms of main statistical series and discussion of problems underlying them (i.e. reliability of statistics)

    "We are quite fortunate that a scholar of Davies' maturity and depth has taken the time to write such and accessible and useful book for those who do not have the time or inclination to get into the specialized literature." Paul Gregory, EH.Net
