Molotov and Soviet government : Sovnarkom, 1930-41 by Derek Watson( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring such general issues as the differing roles of the Communist Party and the State in ruling the former Soviet Union and the exercise of political power in the Stalin regime, this first western study of the chief Soviet government body during the 1930s traces the history of the Council of People's Commissars (Sovnarkom) whilst Molotov was chairman. Sovnarkom co-ordinated the work of the commissariats (later to be called ministries) and supervised the implementation of the policies of collectivization and industrialization. It was intimately connected with the Great Purge as the heads of the secret police were commissars. Using recently available archival sources, the working of the institution and changes in its structure and membership are examined, as is the political history of the institution, including the parts played by Molotov, Ordzhonikidze, Kaganovich and other major politicians who were members during the critical decade in this development of Stalinism

The soviet defence-industry complex from Stalin to Khrushchev( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on collaborative research by Russian and British scholars in the hitherto secret archives of the Soviet government, the party and the armed forces, this book is a pioneering investigation of the economic dynamics and social and political significance of Soviet defence production. It examines the origins of the Soviet defence drive in the internal tensions and threat perceptions of the interwar period. It reveals how the advent of new weapons such as the atomic bomb and the ballistic missile brought science and production into a new and even more secretive relationship, and how Soviet industry, the army and the security organs vied for control over the defence production process."--Jacket

Part two evaluates the unfinished revolution which has partly opened the archives, while part three offers reflections on the future of the Soviet past
Soviet railways to Russian railways by J. N Westwood( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the postsoviet decade Russian railways remained highly centralised, evaded the upheavals of mass privatisation, and remained the backbone of a demoralised economy. Preserving much of Soviet practice, the Railways Ministry mounted a skilled rearguard action that achieved a gradual and considered adaptation to the market economy rather than the pell-mell, western-orientated, liberalisation that afflicted other branches of the economy. This book describes that rearguard action, and goes on to show how railway managers are coping with the new conditions
