Science in Soviet Russia

AFTER the Revolution in Russia in 1917, the United States Government severed diplomatic relations and did not resume them until 1933. To commemorate the ten-year period a meeting of the Science Panel of the Congress of American-Soviet Friendship was held in New York City on November 7, 1943. It was in two parts: one section under Prof. Harold C. Urey dealt with Soviet science and technology, and the other under Prof. Walter B. Cannon with public health and war-time medicine in the U.S.S.R. Fourteen papers were read, each dealing with a particular branch of science, and they are collected in this little volume, "Science in Soviet Russia".
