Russia's Soviet Economy
Russia's Soviet Economy
By Harry Schwartz
Prentice-Hall, 1950, 592 pp

Considering the inevitable paucity of statistical straw, the author has succeeded in molding some remarkably substantial bricks in this useful survey of the structure and operation of the Soviet economy. The treatment, following an historical and ideological background, is topical: industry, agriculture, transport, trade and services, finances, labor, and foreign economic relations.
