Summary
"The result of visits to Russia from 1930-1932, this book, published in 1933, at a time when the social structure of the world was in great upheaval, covers a wide range of the activities of Soviet Russia. Much of the book covers the Five-Year Plan in relation to industry, agriculture, labour, banking and the budget, but legal, political and sociological aspects of the country are also covered. The final section, which discusses the direction US foreign policy should take in relation to Russia has an enduring relevance today, some 70 years after this book was first published.
