"The collection stands out as one of the most useful volumes currently available on the Soviet Union in the 1930s." —Labour History Review

Discussion focuses on urbanization, social mobility, questions of social identity and the cultural constructions of the industrialization drive, as well as work organization, management relations, and the underlying processes of industrial organization.
