Why bother with the writings on a defunct economy by authors now at best retired? -- Part I: Sovietology and the soviet military power. The origin and structure of sovietology -- The politburo's holy of holies -- Part II: Soviet military power in the Sovietological mirror. The missing sector -- Civilianizing the objectives of the planners -- Civilianizing industrialization -- Part III: Why government money could not buy economists' love. The secrecy hypothesis -- Beating soviet swords into Sovietological ploughshares -- Civilianization elsewhere
During the Cold War, Western economic studies of the USSR neglected the military sector of the Soviet economy. Were economic Sovietologists under political pressure, and if so, in what direction? This book has broad relevance for national security uses of social science research today.-- Adapted from dust jacket
