Reviews

“Davies gives us a fine-grained analysis of investment and outcomes throughout the economy, as well as many new details about how plans were debated and revised. … anyone interested in specific sectors or episodes in the economic development of the mid-1930s should consult this encyclopedic work.” (Julie Hessler, Slavic Review, Vol. 75 (1), Spring, 2016)
