Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. From the late nineteenth century to the eve of World War II, America s experts on Russia watched as Russia and the Soviet Union embarked on a course of rapid industrialization. Captivated by the idea of modernization, diplomats, journalists and scholars across the political spectrum rationalized the enormous human cost of this path to progress. In an examination of this crucial era, David Engerman underscores the key role economic development played in America s understanding of Russia and explores its profound effects on US policy. American intellectuals from George Kennan to Samuel Harper to Calvin Hoover understod Russian events in terms of national character. Many of them used stereotypes of Russian passivity, backwardness and fatalism to explain the need for - and the costs of - Soviet economic development. These costs included devastating famines that left millions starving while the government still exported grain. This book is an example of the new international history that seamlessly blends cultural and intellectual currents with policymaking and foreign relations. It offers valuable insights into the role of cultural differences and the shaping of economic policy for developing nations even today. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : From the late nineteenth century to the eve of World War II, America's experts on Russia watched as Russia and the Soviet Union embarked on a course of rapid industrialization.

In an examination of this crucial era, David Engerman underscores the key role economic development played in America's understanding of Russia and explores its profound effects on US policy. American intellectuals from George Kennan to Samuel Harper to Calvin Hoover understod Russian events in terms of national character. Many of them used stereotypes of Russian passivity, backwardness and fatalism to explain the need for - and the costs of - Soviet economic development.

This book is an example of the new international history that seamlessly blends cultural and intellectual currents with policymaking and foreign relations. It offers valuable insights into the role of cultural differences and the shaping of economic policy for developing nations even today.

Critique: Readers of Mr. Engerman's book will be struck by parallels to current globalization debates between ascendant universalists and skeptical particularists. -- Bertrand M. Patenaude Wall Street Journal 20040224 This fascinating, full-blown account of how Russia was reflected in the American mind ranges from the late 1800s, across the 1917 Revolution, and into the harsh, hopeful, tragic assault of modernization in the 1930s...Engerman digs deep into decades of published and unpublished writings by a broad spectrum of Russia experts and traces with skill their impact on government. -- Robert Legvold Foreign Affairs 20040501
