The correspondence records his positions on major internal and foreign-affairs decisions and reveals his opinions about fellow members of the Politburo and other senior figures. Written during the years of agricultural collectivization, forced industrialization, famine, repression, and Soviet rearmament in the face of threats from Germany and Japan, these letters constitute an unsurpassed historical resource for all students of the Stalin regime and Soviet history
The years of hunger : Soviet agriculture, 1931-1933 by R. W Davies( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first comprehensive survey of the grim years of the Soviet famine based on formerly secret and top-secret Russian and Ukrainian archives. It considers the famine against the background of the long-term and medium-term factors which led to the agricultural crisis, and assesses the extent to which the famine was 'organised' or 'artificial'. Its controversial conclusions differ from those of many previous historians, including Robert Conquest."--BOOK JACKET
Materials for a balance of the Soviet national economy, 1928-1930 by Soviet Union( Book )

15 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains a full translation of a major but little-known Soviet work on Soviet national income accounts for a crucial stage in the social and economic transformation of the Soviet economy from 1928 to 1930. These were years of mass collectivisation and the launching of the Soviet industrialisation drive. The USSR was perhaps unique in having a well-developed statistical service able to record the detailed changes in economic relationships that were taking place at this time. The translation is accompanied by three introductory articles which explain the structure and contents of these materials, what new light these materials throw on the development of the Soviet economy in this period and describe the significance of these materials for the history of Soviet statistics and planning. Amongst other questions this evidence casts some doubt on recent attempts to show that Soviet industrialisation resulted in a change in the net flow of goods between industry and agriculture, in favour of agriculture. It also shows that considerable attempts were made by some influential statisticians and planners in the early 1930s to analyse the relationship between different branches and sectors of the economy. In a foreword Professor Sir Richard Stone sets the achievement of the construction of these materials in the context of the history of Western works on national income accounts
