Polish Postwar Economy

By Thad Paul Alton

Columbia University Press, 1955, 330 pp.

An able monograph, one of the studies of the Russian Institute of Columbia University, on Polish economic planning and development under the Communist régime. As in other areas of the Soviet orbit, marked advances in industry have been accompanied by difficulties in agriculture and a failure to bring about improvement in living standards.
