Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: What really caused the failure of the Soviet Union's ambitious plans to modernize and industrialize its agricultural system?. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_0300200692
Inhaltsangabe: This book is the first to investigate the gap between the plans and the reality of the Soviet Union?s mid-twentieth-century project to industrialize and modernize its agricultural system. Historians agree that the project failed badly: agriculture was inefficient, unpredictable, and environmentally devastating for the entire Soviet period. Yet assigning the blame exclusively to Soviet planners would be off the mark. The real story is much more complicated and interesting, Jenny Leigh Smith reveals in this deeply researched book. Using case studies from five Soviet regions, she acknowledges hubris and shortsightedness where it occurred but also gives fair consideration to the difficulties encountered and the successes—however modest—that were achieved.
Über den Autor: Jenny Leigh Smith is assistant professor of history in the School of History, Technology and Society, Georgia Institute of Technology. She lives in Atlanta, GA.
