Handbook of the Soviet Union

Excerpt

The Handbook of the Soviet Union is the successor of the "Economic Handbook of the Soviet Union," published by the American-Russian Chamber of Commerce in 1931, and seeks to present in a concise form, facts and statistics concerning the development of some of the more important phases of the national economy of the Union of Soviet Socialist ReSYSTEMs.

The statistics and much of the information contained in this volume were obtained from official Soviet sources. We publish them in the belief that they are as accurate as such compilations can be made and that they provide an authoritative basis upon which to build an understanding of the development of Soviet trade, industry and agriculture in recent years and of the social and political structure of that country. The figures for 1934 are in many cases preliminary and subject to later revision.

The American-Russian Chamber of Commerce is grateful to the Information Department of the Amtorg Trading Corporation for its assistance in connection with the preparation of the Handbook, and also to the various departments of the of the U.S.S.R. which have published much of the material on which the data contained therein have been based.

THE AMERICAN-RUSSIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. October, 1935.
