LORD CARRINGTON Secretary General, North Atla/ltic Treaty Orga/lisation In providing a foreword to this volume, I have to declare an interest. I was, and am still, an enthusiastic advocate of the idea of having a resident Sovietologist at NATO headquarters, Indeed, I wondered how the work of the organisation had been done for so long without the benefit of a resident expert on a subject of such crucial interest. I was therefore delighted when an American academic of high reputation, Murray Feshbach, joined us as our first Sovietologist. I was also encouraged that he decided to organise last November a Workshop in which NATO staff could take part and which would attract prestigious participants from all the countries of this alliance, I saw for myself the high level of interest created by the Workshop, and judge it to have a very considerable success, I hope there will be other similar events in the future, There is no doubt that, in the light of the series of developments and changes launched over recent months by Mr

The Soviet population policy debate : actors and issues by Murray Feshbach( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Note examines the Soviet Union's successful campaign since the early 1960s to revive demography as a science and as a foundation for population policies. It traces the connections between expert discussions and policy decisions, and describes the tactics Soviet scholars use to direct attention toward complex and sensitive issues. The source materials are Soviet monographs, journals, and newspapers, as well as internal small-circulation documents and information the author acquired on personal visits. The findings suggest that the channels, including personal ties, by which individual or collective recommendations reach the levels where new policies are authorized remain obscure, but there is no doubt that demographers in the Soviet Union have been heard

The Soviet Union : population trends and dilemmas by Murray Feshbach( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent trends and differentials among the Soviet Union's 15 republics and major nationalities are reviewed, focusing on fertility, mortality and urbanization, the prospect for labor supplies and military manpower, emigration, and projected population growth to 2000. Estimated at 270 million as of mid-1982, the Soviet population is currently growing at 0.8% a year, down from 1.8% in the 1950s. In 1981, the leadership instituted limited measures, partially differentiated by region, designed to raise fertility among Russians in particular. Low fertility, combined with rising mortality, is expected to reduce the Russian share of the total population from 52% in 1979 to 47% in 2000 while the share of high-fertility Muslim groups rises from 17% to 21%. Virtually all the sharply reduced national labor force growth in 1980-95 will come from the high-fertility, non-Slavic regions, a problem complicated by Central Asian Muslims' reluctance to migrate to labor-short urban areas in their own and other republics. Most capital investment now goes to defense, agriculture and energy, leaving little room for increased investment in health-care delivery, which could reduce death rates, or in housing, which might help raise fertility. Additional information is provided, supported by data presented in figures and tables. (Author/JN)
