Editorial Reviews

?Luke offers an alternative interpretation of the industrialization of the Soviet Union following the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. He compares the inculcation of the work ethic brought about by the Protestant Revolution in Western Europe to the attempt by the Russian revolutionary intelligentsia to inculcate a similar work ethic based on Marxist-Leninist ideology. ... After a detailed comparison of the ideas of the revolutionary intelligentsia to those of West European Protestant reformers, Luke turns to a detailed examination of Soviet efforts to inculcate mdoern working habits on a largely rural population during the two decades after the 1917 Revolution. After the first two chapters, the focus is entirely on the Soviet experience. Although a bit strained at times, the comparison drawn is provocative and well worth considering as an alternative view on Soviet industrialization. The book is best suited to readers with a good background in Soviet history and Marxist-Leninist philosophy. Upper division and up.?-Choice
