August 1953
New Republic;8/3/53, Vol. 129 Issue 1, p6
The article focuses on socio-economic conditions in the Soviet Union during 1953. Social, economic, psychological improvement in the Soviet world, no matter how trivial it may be in terms of need or by Western standards, seems to be a fact. As such it whets European appetites. Many things seem already to have happened inside the Soviet Union. Certainly, the mood of the rulers and of rulership has shown signs of change along lines that are particularly impressive to Western Europeans in their present mood of greater interest in economic, social and psychological factors, than in political and military factors.
