      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 synthetic account of how science became a central weapon in the ideological Cold ble Mention for the Forum for the History of Science in America Book Prize of the Forum for the History of Science in AmericaFor most of the second half of the twentieth century, the United States and its allies competed with a hostile Soviet Union in almost every way imaginable except.

      This book analyzes the alternatives that Soviet energy planners face in meeting domestic needs and in exporting high-priced energy products as a source of revenue for the purchase of advanced technology from the West. The authors review Soviet supplies of fossil fuels, hydroelectric and nuclear power,more». Counterbalancing the scarcity of good books on the history of Russian and Soviet science in Western languages is a large body of literature on the subject published in the Soviet Union in recent decades. The center of this research is the Institute of the History of Science and Technology of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, located in Moscow.

      Although there are no energy balances available for the Soviet Union, the author has constructed such balances by drawing upon data prepared by the Soviet Central Statistical Administration and numerous other sources. This report presents Soviet fuel and energy balances for five benchmark years: , , , , and The nation’s most comprehensive data and analysis resource for the vehicle technology market, the Transportation Energy Data Book: Edit is now available for download with updated facts and statistics.
