"Sport Societies of the USSR, 1917 - 1941" . D.Nikitov, V. Kudryashov, B. Goldman. C. 2005, Moscow. Russian text. Soft cover, 76 pp, over 350 color photographs of badges and ID cards. 10" x 7"
Extremely interesting research of this previously uncharted territory. The book for the first time identifies hundreds of jettons and badges. In addition, it provides history of evolution of Soviet governmental control over sports from the Revolution to early WW2 era. Fascinating reading for anyone who is interested in early Soviet history, let alone for a badge collector. Very nicely done, and highly recommended!
