British and American Commercial Relations with Soviet Russia, 1918-1924

Synopsis

White reassesses Anglo-American trade with Soviet Russia immediately following the Bolshevik Revolution to show that, unlike diplomatic relations, commercial ties were not severed by ideological differences. She argues that British and American trade with Russia resumed soon after the Bolsheviks' rise to power and that this period of trade had a significant effect on future commerce.

Originally published in 1992.

Excerpt

In the preparation of this book, I have had the good fortune to be allowed to work in a number of public and private archives and libraries. Many thanks are due to the tireless archivists, librarians, and staff of the Public Record Office and the British Museum in London; the National Archives and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.; the Library of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies at the University of London; the Library of Political and Economic Science, London; Cambridge University Library; the Bodleian Library, Oxford; the Slavonic Library at Helsinki University; the Butler Memorial Library at Columbia University; and the New York Public Library. I owe a special debt to Mr. David Crippen of the Henry Ford Museum, Dearborn; Mr. Edward Green of Midland Bank; Mr. Daniel Hartgrove of the National Archives, Washington, D.C.; Mr. Michael Jacobson, Dr. Elena Danielson, and Dr. Carol Leadenham of the Hoover Institution Archives, Stanford, California; Mr. Leo Van Rossum of the Internationaal Instituut voor Sociale Geschiedenis, Amsterdam; and Mr. G. J. Bawcutt of Kodak, Ltd., all who patiently endured my endless questions and provided me with valuable help and insight. I am also grateful to Mr. H. E. Scrope of Vickers, Ltd., who very kindly gave me permission to consult the Vickers Company archives before they were turned over to the Cambridge University Library. A collective -- but no less heartfelt -- thanks is due to the many other archivists, curators, and librarians . . .
