Synopsis

This volume presents a comprehensive and clear picture of the functioning of the different Russian institutions, the efforts of the planners to impose their goals, and the various types of economic adjustments made at different stages of development. The huge mass of previously inaccessible quantitative data presented serves as a basis for understanding the Soviet planning system.

Originally published 1980.

Excerpt

Science flourishes through open communication, and it is therefore worthwhile to remove any barriers to the exchange of ideas that we can. The prime objective of the Office of Soviet Economic Research, a unit of the Thomas Jefferson Center at the University of Virginia, is to improve the climate of scholarship in the field of Soviet studies by encouraging interchange within the international scholarly community. To that end, we present this book as the second in a series of translations of Dr. Eugène Zaleski's works on Soviet planning. The first, Planning Reforms in the Soviet Union, 1962-1966, was published in 1967 by the University of North Carolina Press.

We are grateful to the American Oil Foundation, the Lilly Endowment, the Relm Foundation, and the Scaife Foundation for the generous financial support that made this publication possible. As usual, we owe a special debt to Marie-Christine MacAndrew for contributing her outstanding translating and editorial skills. We thank Betty Tillman, Margaret Foster, Maxine Maupin, and Margaret Chambliss for typing the manuscript, and Terry Nutter for preparing the index.

The Library of Congress system of transliterating the Russian alphabet has been used, except that diphthong marks and apostrophes for hard and soft signs have been eliminated.
