About this book


The difficult years of Moscow in 1931-34 witnessed enormous social change in the city and the region. Industrialisation drive and collectivisation of agriculture resulted in unpredicted social upheavals on which new local leaders like Kaganovich, Khrushchev and Malenkov had to cope with. The book describes how such tasks as city planning, provisioning, supply, city transport, including the Metro, were dealt with. The book also considers the impact of this experience on the national level politics, and on the destalinisation campaign after 1953.
