This volume argues that the USSR was one of the most successful developing economies of the twentieth century. He reaches this provocative conclusion by recalculating national consumption and using economic, demographic, and computer simulation models to address the "what if" questions central to Soviet history. Moreover, by comparing Soviet performance not only with advanced but with less developed countries, he provides a meaningful context for its evaluation. Although the Russian economy began to develop in the late nineteenth century based on wheat exports, modern economic growth proved elusive. But growth was rapid from 1928 to the 1970s--due to successful Five Year Plans. The building of heavy industry accelerated growth during the 1930s and raised living standards, especially for the many peasants who moved to cities. A sudden drop in fertility due to the education of women and their employment outside the home also facilitated growth.

 

While highlighting the previously underemphasized achievements of Soviet planning, Farm to Factory also shows, through methodical analysis set in fluid prose, that Stalin's worst excesses--such as the bloody collectivization of agriculture--did little to spur growth. Economic development stagnated after 1970, as vital resources were diverted to the military and as a Soviet leadership lacking in original thought pursued wasteful investments.

Αυτό το βιβλίο εξετάζει το ρόλο των Ρώσων ευγενών την περίοδο 1861-1914. Σε αντιπαράθεση με την οπτική που αποδίδει την αναδιαμόρφωση των ευγενών στις αναχρονιστικές τους αντιλήψεις και την αποτυχία να ανταποκριθούν τις κοινωνικές αλλαγές, ο παρόν τόμος απορρίπτει την ιδέα της πτώσης της τάξης και υποστηρίζει ότι οι γαιοκτήμονες ανταποκρίθηκαν θετικά στις νέες συνθήκες και συνέβαλαν αποφασιστικά στην οικονομική και πολιτική εξέλιξη της Ρωσίας./Τhis book examines the transformation of the Russian nobility between 1861 and 1914. Contrary to the view that attirbutes the transformation to the anachronistic attitudes of its members and their failure to adapt to social change, this volume challenges this idea of "the decline of the nobility." and argues that the privileged estate responded positively to change and greatly influenced their nation's political and economic destiny.

This volume is a comprehensive history of New York's economic elite, the most powerful group in nineteenth-century America. It explains how a small and diverse group of New Yorkers came to wield unprecedented economic, social, and political power from 1850 to the turn of the twentieth century and reveals the central role of the Civil War in realigning New York's economic elite, abandoning the free labor views of the antebellum years for laissez-faire liberalism.

In what ways did the development of cities in late tsarist Russia alter the character of social relations and conflicts in that key period? At first glance, the question may appear poorly posed. It has long been customary to assess the history of Russian society in the nineteenth century and early twentieth centuries in terms of estate and class, to evaluate change by class differentiation, and to look for the sources of social conflict in the strains engendered by the transformation of a "society of estates" into a "society of classes." The urban centers of the country fran this point of view provided merely the setting in which key segments of the population experienced and reacted to new economic forces and political pressures.

Russian Empire offers new perspectives on the strategies of imperial rule pursued by rulers, officials, scholars, and subjects of the Russian empire. An international team of scholars explores the connections between Russia’s expansion over vast territories occupied by people of many ethnicities, religions, and political experiences and the evolution of imperial administration and vision. The fresh research reflected in this innovative volume reveals the ways in which the realities of sustaining imperial power in a multiethnic, multiconfessional, scattered, and diffuse environment inspired political imaginaries and set limits on what the state could accomplish. Taken together, these rich essays provide important new frameworks for understanding Russia’s imperial geography of power.

This interdisciplinary collection of essays on the social and cultural life of late imperial Russia describes the struggle of new elites to take up a "middle position" in society--between tsar and people. During this period autonomous social and cultural institutions, pluralistic political life, and a dynamic economy all seemed to be emerging. But then diversity had as its price the potential for political disorder and social dissolution. Analyzing the attempt of educated Russians to forge new identities, this book reveals the social, cultural, and regional fragmentation of the times.
