The second volume of a massive study of Soviet planning and performance from the Revolution to the end of the Stalin period. It is a formidable work, encompassing mountains of references and statistics, in which the author looks to the realities, to what planning did and did not do in directing the economy, and how it served as an instrument of Stalinist policy and power.
