Economic Geography of the USSR
Economic Geography of the USSR
By S. S. Balzak and Others
Macmillan, 1949, 620 pp

This is the translation of the first volume of a compendious Soviet treatise, prepared under the auspices of the Russian Translation Project of the American Council of Learned Societies. Though dating from just before the war, it is a work of fundamental importance. The notes, maps and tables added by the American editors render it of still greater value.
