Visions of a New Land

Yale University Press

This chapter explores developments that occurred across the Soviet territories from 1917 to 1930. It also discusses Lenin's efforts in connecting all Soviet villages in all of Russia. It also details Lenin's plan of providing electricity to the populace, as a symbol of progress and communism's power. The electrification of Russia was then followed by a period of industrialization, which was embodied by the Soviet government's Five-Year Plan—which aimed to double Russia's industrial capital stock in a five-year period starting from 1928 to 1932.

Keywords:   developments, Lenin, Soviet, Russia, Five-Year Plan, electrification, industrialization
