Abstract:

This text is concerned primarily with the physical and human resources of the Soviet Union today and with its organization. The military and industrial powerhouse now facing us did not come into being in any mystical way its present position is due to excellent natural resources, hard work, and skilled-albeit ruthless-organization. Because of limited space, the descriptive rather than the historical approach is used here however, the historical chapter will help correct any imbalance. The reader should not regard the treatment of any subject touched upon in this text as definitive. The intent is rather to provide some background for a better understanding of the Soviet Union and to stimulate further study.
