This study traces postwar Soviet regional economic development and policy in the East Siberian and Soviet Far Eastern economic regions ('Pacific Siberia 1 ) from 1955-75 (extended in some aspects to 1980). Following a general literature review of Western approaches to the study of Soviet regional development, the overall successes and constraints on regional development in the study areas are traced. After this summary overview, three distinct areas of regional problems and policy become the focus for detailed investigation: the political economy of industrial location, debates on regional (industrial) specialisation in general and in the machine building sector in particular, and an overview of the economic interrelations between the study regions and the remainder of the Soviet economy. Conclusions are drawn in relation to the interaction of these three topics with the resultant pattern of regional development.
