Although the Soviet Union has the most abundant energy reserves of any country, energy policy has been the single most disruptive factor in its industry since the mid-1970s. This major case study treats the paradox of the energy crisis as an essential part of larger economic problems of the Soviet Union and as a key issue in determining the fate of the Gorbachev reforms.

Originally published in 1989.

Reviews:

"Crisis amid Plenty is a well-crafted scholarly study. Although the focus is on the petroleum industry, this book offers a valuable window through which to view recent economic change in the Soviet Union. The energy analyst and anyone with a serious interest in Soviet economic decision making will benefit from studying this book."--Russell Mellett, Canadian Business Review

"This book...provides an instructive example of how difficult it is to achieve efficient allocation when the system is driven by political policy. [Crisis amid Plenty] should interest Soviet specialists, in both universities and government, and prove instructive for students of the Soviet economic system, graduate or undergraduate."--Choice
