Peaceful atomic-energy programs in Soviet bloc nations.
A 1959 study concerned with the peaceful sharing of atomic energy in the previous four years by the Soviet Union with certain nations of the Soviet Bloc. Progress varied from country to country according to the degree of economic and political stability, the level of industrialization, and other factors. These nations remained closely dependent on technical assistance from the Soviet Union, although all of them wanted their own atomic-power stations eventually. Developments in East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Communist China, Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria are reviewed. 33 pp.
