Agrarian Policies in Communist Europe

By Karl-Eugen Wädekin
Allanheld, Osmun, 1982
324 pp. $24.95

This, the first of three projected volumes on agriculture in the U.S.S.R. and Eastern Europe, is a comprehensive comparative survey, historical and contemporary. Except for Poland and Yugoslavia, which retained a predominant private sector, all these countries had socialized agriculture on the Soviet model by the 1960s and then were forced by poor performance to face the need for reform, which only Hungary has met with any success. A book to be welcomed, with plenty of figures for the specialist and clear and intelligible writing for the general reader.
