Workers Before and After Lenin
Workers Before and After Lenin
By Manya Gordon
Dutton, 1941, 524 pp

In a day when good books on Russia are becoming increasingly rare it is a pleasure to welcome this sound piece of diligent research and objective interpretation. Making full use of Soviet statistics, the author shows how in the field of wages, living standards, social services and education the actual standards at present are not only far below official Soviet claims but inferior to those that prevailed under the Tsars.
