Kondratiev before the Conjuncture Institute

  • Vincent Barnett
Part of the Studies in Russian and East European History and Society book series (SREEHS)


This chapter examines Kondratiev’s student years in St Petersburg, his membership of the Socialist Revolutionary (SR) party, his relation-ships with his tutor Tugan-Baranovskii and his best friend Sorokin, his early work on the zemstvo (local self-government institutions), his role in the Provisional Government as Minister for Food Supply, his approach to agrarian reform, his attitude to the Bolshevik revolution, and finally the monograph The Grain Market and its Regulation at the Time of War and Revolution (Rynok khlebov i ego regulirovanie vo vremya voiny i revolyutsii). Each of these topics could occupy an entire chapter, but as the main focus of the book is the 1920s, these aspects of Kondratiev’s life are covered in less detail.
