American Research on Russia

Excerpt

A great deal of research on Russia has been done in the United States since World War II. This is a matter of common knowledge, but many of those who have been doing this research have little or no notion of what has been accomplished in fields of specialization adjacent to their own. Others who are not specialists but for one reason or another are interested in Russia, the Soviet Union, and the Communist movement, have even less reason to know what subjects have been investigated, what has been written about these subjects, and where these writings may be found. At the same time, the lack of this information makes it difficult to know the topics on which further investigation is most urgent or most promising. Furthermore, without knowledge of what studies have been made, it is impossible to make the best use for general education and public enlightenment of the truly impressive scholarly work of the last few years. The essays in this book are intended to provide this information, first, by reviewing American research on Russia during the years since World War II and, secondly, by indicating some of the topics on which further research would benefit the specialist and the nonspecialist and add to our knowledge of an important area.
