Resumen

Escrito por Publicador

The author set himself a rather limited aim, i. e. to study the historical development of the society's productive forces and socio-productive relations in their dialectical unity and interrelation. Besides, the author tried not to reiterate in his research all that well-known verities, which had already been covered explicitly enough in social literature.

This book is intended for economists, sociologists, political scientists, other specialists in humanities, and in general to all the interested readers.
