THE ABCs of Soviet Socialism: The Soviet Economic Experiment, 1917-80
By James R. Millar
University of Illinois Press, 1981, 225 pp.

A survey of the Soviet economy that is general, non-technical, but admirably descriptive and analytical. Millar makes good use of his own earlier work, especially on agriculture, and that of other Western economists. In its stress on what actually happens within the supposed "command" economy it is informative and refreshing.
