Soviet Russia An Introduction

By Jacob Miller Copyright 1955

    Soviet Russia (1955) discusses the origins and growth of Russian industry, in particular the emergence of a large modern working class and administrative class since the war, how the factories and farms are run, the wage systems, and the plans. The development of farming is described, especially the political management of relations between the peasants and industry. It covers the Soviet political system as a product of Russian history, and the deep changes in the Soviet political system after industrialization. It also looks at finance, the standard of living, strikes, the control of labour, family organization, ideas of world revolution, and the nations of the Soviet Union.
