Soviet Union - a geographical survey

£7.99

Product description

From the back cover:
"The Soviet Union holds a very prominent place in the international division of labour and has lately increased its foreign trade thanks to the high and steady rate of economic growth and the planned nature of its national economy which is free from the crippling whims of the market forces ....The Soviet Union together with the socialist states which appeared after the Second World War formed a world socialist system, a mighty bulwark of freedom-loving nations fighting against all forms of oppression"
This book, published in the 1970s some 15 years before the fall of the Berlin Wall, describes the geography, population and economy of the Soviet Union in a period when socialism with central control was still widely believed to be a viable alternative to free market capitalism.
In coffee table format the book has numerous photographs in colour and black and white, maps (some fold out), diagrams and tables.
It is in good condition, although the dust jacket is worn and peeling in places.
