Industrial Innovation in the Soviet Union
Edited by Ronald Amann and Julian M. Cooper
Yale University Press, 1982, 526 pp.

Continuing earlier work in this field, a talented research team at the University of Birmingham completes a massive study of research and development in Soviet industry, sector by sector, industry by industry, institution by institution, reform by reform. The problems are not all at the top but travel through the entire system. The book is a mine of information, a great help to the understanding of the Soviet economy.
