The Modernization of Japan and Russia: A Comparative Study
By Cyril E. Black and Others
Free Press, 1975, 386 pp.

The product of intensive and fruitful collaboration among historians, economists, and sociologists, this study is not only a major contribution to the literature of modernization, but it stands out as a landmark of comparative and multidisciplinary social scientific study. Free of jargon and well-written, it should interest specialist and generalist alike. Excellent bibliography.
