Factory and Manager in the USSR
Factory and Manager in the USSR
By Joseph S. Berliner
Harvard University Press, 1957, 386 pp

In this volume of the studies of the Russian Research Center at Harvard, Mr. Berliner undertakes to study managerial behavior in the Soviet Union--the methods devised, often dubious, to keep an enterprise running and afloat in the peculiar setting of the U.S.S.R. A very useful contribution based both on written materials and interviews with former Soviet managers.
