"Soviet Agriculture" by the plant physiologist turned historian in exile Zhores Medvedev was written shortly before Bolshevism lost its power in the U.S.S.R. Medvedev did not foresee that, but he did identify agriculture as the critical failure of the government and party, which had to be corrected if the economic system were not to collapse.5/5(2).

During the Soviet years, Russian science was touted as one of the greatest successes of the regime.

Russian science was considered to be equal, if not superior, to that of the wealthy western nations. The Perversion of Knowledge, a history of Soviet science that focuses on its control by the KGB and the Communist Party, reveals the dark side of this glittering achievement.

Soviet Agriculture. Although the Soviet Union had the world's largest soil resources, climatic and hydrological conditions made farming a high-risk venture, even within the most favorable zone. Education in the USSR examines the current and official Soviet educational philosophy, with emphasis on social, moral, and political aspects of Soviet education.

Organized into five chapters, this book begins with a discussion on the origins of Soviet educational philosophy. Then, the Soviet school as an organization is explained.

Lysenkoism (Russian: Лысе́нковщина, tr. Lysenkovshchina) was a political campaign led by Trofim Lysenko against genetics and science-based agriculture in the midth century, rejecting natural selection in favour of Lamarckism and exaggerated claims for the benefits of vernalization and o served as the director of the Soviet Union's Lenin All-Union Academy of.

This book is intended to provide an overview of toxicology that examines the hazardous effects of common agrochemicals employed every day in our agricultural practices. Stalin, Soviet Agriculture and Collectivization. My study examines famines and agricultural sciences in Russia and the USSR.

Book. Food for the future: Conditions and contradictions of Author: Mark Tauger. Much text is devoted to the ruinous effects of Trofim Lysenko's crackpot theories on Soviet agriculture and on the lives of scientists who dared to criticize him. For a highly detailed story of the scientific effort devoted to developing the Soviet bomb project, I recommend "Stalin and the Bomb" by /5(27).

In this book, Dr. Valery Soyfer, a former Soviet scientist who had met Lysenko, documents the destruction of science and scientists under the influence of Lysenko. Contrary to numerous opinions, Lysenko was an poorly educated agronomist who happened to.

Science and technology in the Soviet Union served as an important part of national politics, practices, and the time of Lenin until the dissolution of the USSR in the early s, both science and technology were intimately linked to the ideology and practical functioning of the Soviet state, and were pursued along paths both similar and distinct from models in other countries.

A small, non-Slavic nation located far from the Soviet capital, Georgia was more closely linked with the Ottoman and Persian empires than with Russia for most of its history.

One of over one hundred officially classified Soviet nationalities, Georgians represented less than 2% of the Soviet population, yet they constituted an extraordinarily successful and powerful minority. Now thoroughly revised in its second edition, The Soviet Experiment examines the complex themes of Soviet history, ranging from the last tsar of the Russian empire to the first president of the Russian republic.

The figure of Joseph Stalin has always provoked heated and often polarized debate. The recent declassification of a substantial portion of Stalin's archive has made possible this fundamental new assessment of the Soviet leader.

Investigations of how the global Cold War shaped national scientific and technological practices in fields from biomedicine to rocket science.

The Cold War period saw a dramatic expansion of state-funded science and technology research. Government and military patronage shaped Cold War technoscientific practices, imposing methods that were project oriented, team based, and subject to national. The core myth about Soviet agriculture is that it can only be judged successful if it provides for all the Union's agricultural needs, becomes the world's leading agricultural nation and achieves theoretically defined optima in resource allocation, productive efficiency and consumer satisfaction.

This comprehensive account of Soviet agriculture is in three parts, outlining the framework against which Soviet agriculture has had to operate, its development from and the problems with which it is currently faced.

Part I suggests that the original revolutionary regime was faced with the dilemma of a backward peasant agriculture operating under a rigid bureaucratic system inherited Author: E. Strauss.
