Funding Loyalty: The Economics of the Communist Party.
The flow of money to national, regional, and local Soviet communist party organizations, the manner in which money was collected, and how their financial discipline was enforced all yield deep insights into the party’s role in the Soviet institutional design. Funding Loyalty examines the Soviet communist party’s financial operations and its budget from the 1930s through 1960s, providing a fresh look at the evolution of the party and its role in the Soviet economy and society as a whole.
