Beset by agricultural crisis and with the example of Hungary's successful experience before them, the U.S.S.R. and other East European countries are looking with a kinder eye on the potential of the private plots. Since it is difficult to collect complete and reliable comparative statistics in this field, this brief monograph put out under the auspices of the University of Giessen is welcome for the generally accurate and up-to-date picture it presents of the place of the private sector in these collectivized agricultural economies.
