  • Kleine Geschichte der Sowjetunion 1917-1991by Helmut Altrichter

    This book, published in 1937, reported on a four week visit to Moscow in 1936 to study the making of Moscow as a showpiece Soviet capital. At its core was the 1935 General Plan for the Reconstruction of Moscow but the book was a study of planning in the Soviet rather than the Western sense. Thus it covered many aspects of the city?s social and economic... more...
