Urban Society in Transition

  • R. W. Davies


The industrialisation drive began a profound transformation of Soviet society. In the words of Moshe Lewin, this was a ‘society in flux’. Peasants moved into the towns in large numbers; a smaller number of townsfolk moved to the countryside to assist in managing the new kolkhozy and sovkhozy; at every level of urban society, people changed their jobs with unprecedented frequency. An education drive accompanied the industrialisation drive.
