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.

'Books in this series are designed to introduce students to key topics, and to set out the arguments and issues in a 'critical but unpartisan fashion'. R. W. Davies has done this with admirable clarity ... As a teaching tool this book will prove invaluable.' Donal Filtzer, University of East London 'Davies has provided a valuable addition to a distinguished series and one which will earn the gratitude of students of Soviet economic development.'
