Abstract

The text illustrates the harshness of the physical environment for the Soviet people and the vast distances which separate them. The author explains the historical evolution of the state and its territorial and administrative organisation and considers its current problems of population and ethnic and national relations. Considerable space is devoted to the resource base and the organisation, distribution and capacity of Soviet industry. The particular problems of agriculture in an essentially hostile environment and of transport in a virtually unlimited space are also considered at length together with the broader geopolitical questions of the Soviet Union's present and future relations with the rest of the world. This publication is made particularly timely by the increasing reluctance of the Soviet authorities to divulge information on their country's achievements and shortcomings.
