A Researcher's Guide to Sources on Soviet Social History in the 1930s by Sheila Fitzpatrick,Lynne Viola Book Resume:

The Stalin era has been less accessible to researchers than either the preceding decade or the postwar era. The basic problem is that during the Stalin years censorship restricted the collection and dissemination of information (and introduced bias and distortion into the statistics that were published), while in the post-Stalin years access to archives and libraries remained tightly controlled. Thus it is not surprising that one of the main manifestations of glasnost has been the effort to open up records of the 1930s. In this volume Western and Soviet specialists detail the untapped potential of sources on this period of Soviet social history and also the hidden traps that abound. The full range of sources is covered, from memoirs to official documents, from city directories to computerized data bases.

How to Find Out in Iron and Steel by D. E. White Book Resume:

How to Find Out in Iron and Steel focuses on guides in conducting research on the manufacture and applications of iron and steel. The book first emphasizes the role of information services and libraries, literature guides, bibliographies, and periodicals in finding information on iron and steel. Topics include guides to sources of information; select lists of books and sources of information on books; and lists of periodicals. The manuscript then takes a look at the functions of periodical indexing and abstracting services in accessing information, including services dealing with science and technology; services solely focusing on iron and steel; and services dealing with the manufacture of iron and steel. The text also discusses the contributions of handbooks, dictionaries, monographs, treatises, textbooks, and standard works in conducting research on the two elements. English dictionaries that focus on a specific aspect of iron and steel technology, mechanical working, foundry practice, heat treatment, and mechanical properties and testing are underscored. The book also explains the different standards used in the manufacture and testing of iron and steel. The manuscript is a dependable reference for readers wanting to conduct research on the manufacture and applications of iron and steel.

The Russian Revolution and Civil War 1917-1921 by Jonathan Smele Book Resume:

The Russian Revolution and Civil War in the years 1917 to 1921 is one of the most widely studied periods in history. It is also somewhat inevitably one that has generated a huge flow of literature in the decades that have passed since the events themselves. However, until now, historians of the revolution have had no dedicated bibliography of the period and little claim to bibliographical control over the literature. The Russian Revolution and Civil War, 1917-1921offers for the first time a comprehensive bibliographical guide to this crucial and fascinating period of history. The Bibliography focuses on the key years of 1917 to 1921, starting with the February Revolution of 1917 and concluding with the 10th Party Congress of March 1921, and covers all the key events of the intervening years. As such it identifies these crucial years as something more than simply the creation of a communist state.

A Guide to Physics Problems by Sidney B. Cahn,Boris E. Nadgorny Book Resume:

In order to equip hopeful graduate students with the knowledge necessary to pass the qualifying examination, the authors have assembled and solved standard and original problems from major American universities – Boston University, University of Chicago, University of Colorado at Boulder, Columbia, University of Maryland, University of Michigan, Michigan State, Michigan Tech, MIT, Princeton, Rutgers, Stanford, Stony Brook, University of Wisconsin at Madison – and Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. A wide range of material is covered and comparisons are made between similar problems of different schools to provide the student with enough information to feel comfortable and confident at the exam. Guide to Physics Problems is published in two volumes: this book, Part 1, covers Mechanics, Relativity and Electrodynamics; Part 2 covers Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics. Praise for A Guide to Physics Problems: Part 1: Mechanics, Relativity, and Electrodynamics: "Sidney Cahn and Boris Nadgorny have energetically collected and presented solutions to about 140 problems from the exams at many universities in the United States and one university in Russia, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. Some of the problems are quite easy, others are quite tough; some are routine, others ingenious." (From the Foreword by C. N. Yang, Nobelist in Physics, 1957) "Generations of graduate students will be grateful for its existence as they prepare for this major hurdle in their careers." (R. Shankar, Yale University) "The publication of the volume should be of great help to future candidates who must pass this type of exam." (J. Robert Schrieffer, Nobelist in Physics, 1972) "I was positively impressed ... The book will be useful to students who are studying for their examinations and to faculty who are searching for appropriate problems." (M. L. Cohen, University of California at Berkeley) "If a student understands how to solve these problems, they have gone a long way toward mastering the subject matter." (Martin Olsson, University of Wisconsin at Madison) "This book will become a necessary study guide for graduate students while they prepare for their Ph.D. examination. It will become equally useful for the faculty who write the questions." (G. D. Mahan, University of Tennessee at Knoxville)

Beyond the Pale by Benjamin Nathans Book Resume:

A surprising number of Jews lived, literally and figuratively, "beyond the Pale" of Jewish Settlement in tsarist Russia during the half-century before the Revolution of 1917. Thanks to the availability of long-closed Russian archives, along with a wide range of other sources, Benjamin Nathans reinterprets the history of the Russian-Jewish encounter. In the wake of Russia's "Great Reforms," Nathans writes, a policy of selective integration stimulated social and geographic mobility among the empire's Jews. The reaction that culminated, toward the turn of the century, in ethnic restrictions on admission to universities, the professions, and other institutions of civil society reflected broad anxieties that Russians were being placed at a disadvantage in their own empire. Nathans's conclusions about the effects of selective integration and the Russian-Jewish encounter during this formative period will be of great interest to all students of modern Jewish and modern Russian history.

Russian Overseas Commerce with Great Britain During the Reign of Catherine II by Herbert H. Kaplan Book Resume:

On the basis of newly-discovered Russian and British archival sources, Kaplan makes important scholarly contributions to eighteenth-century economic history. He conclusively demonstrates that there was not only a symbiotic economic relationship between Russia and Great Britain, but also that Russia contributed greatly to Britain's industrial revolution and its imperial strategic military and political power during the second half of the eighteenth century. Kaplan is the first to estimate the real balance of payments between the two countries in a detailed analysis of a subject treated hitherto only in an impressionistic fashion. The conceptual framework is sophisticated and the interpretations are based on an enormous array of data culled from contemporary customs and commercial archival manuscripts. Kaplan's meticulous analysis of Anglo-Russian commercial treaties as well as Russian tariffs, which were intended to undermine them, reveals policies that both countries undertook to advance their respective maritime and mercantile power. Finally, Kaplan persuasively argues that Britain's military supremacy crucially depended on its receiving an uninterrupted supply of Russian manufactured and natural resources.
