Such was the economic history of the Soviet Union. The achievement of a late nineteenth century vision of economic power by means of violence ossified into a profoundly conservative system that became the foundation of social stability. The idea of change became the reality of no change.

Nove eschews the methodologies and statistical products of western postwar quantitative economic historiography, for reasons included in his familiar "Note on growth rates". At the end he is critical of the Soviet experiment, but in a deterministic vein which leads to sorrow more than anger: "there was no easy path. Mark Harrison Department of Economics University of Warwick Coventry CV4 7AL.

A concise and objective study of the growth of a country, tracing the economy of the USSR throughout the 20th-century. From War Communism, to the new economic policy of the early 1920s and to the economy under Stalin's coercion. This included the Soviet "great leap forward" of five-year- plans, collectivization and Stakhanovism. The author's account of these years of terror reveal not only his close acquaintance with the Soviet sources, but also his ability to divine the historical facts through a mist of propaganda. After a brief survey of the distorted economy of the Second World War and of Malenkov and Krushchev, with their well-intentioned but often hare-brained schemes to expand the economy, he concludes with a notably fair-minded assessment of Russian achievement to date.

Questionable statistics?: 13% of a crop destroyed is quoted, when the actual figures were probably much higher--some say 90% of a crop rotted. Who is to say? This is why nobody will ever definitively write the economic history of the USSR. At best educated guesses. But the author tries.
However, an economic history as opposed to a political history is for the USSR a distorted picture of what happened, because of the bad data problem mentioned above. Hence the three stars.

Nove's history, already widely acclaimed (I had it as assigned reading at Cambridge), is updated in this "final" edition, completed just after the collapse of the USSR. It is extremely readable, just over 400 pages long, and gives a truly outstanding overview -- for the academic and the lay reader alike -- of the rise and fall of the Russian economy, from just before World War I until Gorbachev's resignation. Nove, one of the finest scholars in the field, makes full use of the then newly-opened Soviet archives to add to and refine what was already a brilliant work, and captures herein the first-ever scholarly assessment of the extraordinary Soviet experiment as a whole.

I studied and taught Soviet economic history in Rangoon, Burma and at the Univ of PA for my Ph.D. dissertation. Nove's work is one of the clearest on economic policy changes and helped me immeasurably in understanding the zig zags in Burmese economic policy post 1962 coup.
