G. A. BELOV. Soviet Archivists on the Eve of the Seventh International Archive Congress

The Seventh International Archive Congress, which is scheduled to take place in Moscow in August 1972, will, in a way, be an international review of the functioning of archives in the Soviet Union. The attention in the article is focussed on briefly summarizing the activity carried on by Soviet archive institutions and examining the present-day organization of archive-keeping in the U.S.S.R. The author makes a point of stressing that in the last few years, particularly in connection with the founding of the All-Union Research Institute of Document Classification and Archive Organization, there has been a marked growth of the scientific level of work carried on by Soviet archive institutions and more intensive elaboration of cardinally important theoretical problems of archive-keeping, including the problem of complementing the State Archive Fund of the U.S.S.R. with up-to-date documents. The article sets forth the criteria applied for establishing their value, in the elaboration of which the archivists relied on the active assistance and close cooperation of historians. Citing objective factual and statistical data, the author records important achievements in the work of Soviet archives in all the main directions: replenishment of archives with documents, functioning of the archives kept by different institutions and organizations, technical equipment of archives, the compilation and publication of diverse scientific indexes and reference materials, the use of documentary records for political and scientific purposes, publication activity, etc.

V. P. DMITRENKO. Certain Problems of NEP as Reflected in Soviet Historiography of the 1960's

The author examines the reasons for the heightened interest shown in the problems of NEP in present-day conditions and for the close attention given by researchers to the history of the economic policy during the period of transition from capitalism to socialism both in the U.S.S.R. and abroad. The article contains a survey of relevant literature along some of the major trends characterizing the new stage in the study of NEP: V. I. Lenin's invaluable contribution to the theoretical substantiation and practical implementation of NEP; the basic prerequisites of NEP; a brief characteristic of the most essential component parts and individual stages of NEP. Particular importance is attached by the author to examining the progress made in studying the use of commodity-money relations as one of the cardinal elements of NEP. Summing up a number of discussions (on the character of state capitalism, transitional economic forms, the place of commodity-money relations in the economic policy of the state), the author notes the divergent opinions of historians, outlines the main directions of further research, puts forward the idea that side by side with continued analysis of the role of NEP in strengthening the economic links with the peasantry, regulating and squeezing out the capitalist elements, the most important task is to study the methods applied in the management of the expanding socialist economic system.

Z. D. YASMAN. The Appearance of Agricultural Machine-Building in Russia During the Period of Serfdom

The question concerning the emergence of agricultural machine-building in Russia between the end of the 18th century and the first half of the 19th century, in the period preceding the abolition of serfdom, has not been adequately investigated as yet. The article characterizes the activity of the Free Economic Society, the Moscow Agricultural Association, government institutions and private individuals aimed at introducing farm implements of improved design and at organizing their production in Russia. The author shows that the origin of agricultural machine-building in Russia prior to 1861 was a natural and logical phenomenon determined by the general socio- economic development of the country and testifying to the crisis of the feudal economic system.

V. G. BRYUSOVA. Russo-Byzantine Relations in the Middle of the 11th Century

Focussing attention on the Russo-Byzantine war of the 1040's, the author examines the records contained in a number of written sources (annalistic article about the campaign launched in 1043, historical records written by Polish chroniclers, etc.), the Novgorod stories about the capture of Korsun. the question concerning the origin of the so-called ancient Korsun relics of Novgorod. The article puts forward the hypothesis that following their unsuccessful campaign against Constantinople in 1043, the Russians undertook another campaign against Byzantium in 1044 which culminated in the seizure of Chersonesus Taurica.

The article is devoted to an important and extremely complicated problem of the history of Eastern Europe in the first millennium B.C. -the pattern of social relations among the Scythians. Proceeding from the criteria which were defined by Marx and Engels as the chief indicators of the existence or nonexistence of classes, exploitation and state power in any society, the author has subjected to a detailed examination the few available written sources, as well as archeological and certain other indirect data on the Scythians' social development and social system. The author arrives at the conclusion that in the 6th-5th centuries B.C. the Scythians approached the final stage of disintegration of the primitive communal system, that phenomena characteristic of the transition to the class society and the state already attained a fairly high degree of development in their society. The author believes that Scythian statehood originated approximately in the middle of the 4th century В. С These phenomena are viewed by the author not as simultaneous acts but as protracted processes marked by the emergence of new social forms and the fading away of the old and obsolescent ones.

P, V. MILOGRADOV and I. M. ALEXANDROV. The Peoples of South Уетел in the Struggle for Independence

The article highlights the history of the national liberation struggle waged by the peoples of South Arabia after the second world, war, when British imperialism tried to retain its positions in this part of the world by knocking together a South Arabian Federation. The author graphically shows how the progressive forces of South Arabia under the leadership of the National Liberation Front of Occupied South Yemen gained independence and on November 30, 1967, proclaimed South Yemen a people's republic which, in the summer of 1969, was given the official name of the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen. The republican government of People's Democratic Yemen is steadfastly implementing revolutionary socio-economic reforms. It consistently pursues a foreign policy directed against imperialism, strives to promote peace and international friendship, cooperates with the O.S.S.R. and other socialist countries, as well as with the progressive regimes established in a number of Arab countries.

N. M. LAVROV. The Supreme Revolutionary Convent (from the history of the Mexican Revolution of 1910 - 1917)

The article highlights an important and little-studied period in the history of the Mexican revolution. Drawing on factual material and historical records found in Mexico's national archives and libraries, the author shows how, following the overthrow of General Huerta's reactionary dictatorship in the summer of 1914, there began the process of political polarization in the camp of revolutionary forces uniting the proletariat, the peasantry, the urban p,etty bourgeoisie, the liberal-minded jatifuhdists and the young national bourgeoisie. Squarely confronted with the need to define their stand on the cardinal question of the revolution-the question of power, the bourgeois-latifundist wing headed by Venustiano Carranza decided to smash their erstwhile allies, primarily the Liberation Army led by Emiliano Zapata and the Northern Division commanded by Villa. It was in this situation that the Revolutionary Convent met in session. The representatives of petty-bourgeois democracy attempted to remove Carranza, form a new government and settle the question of power by peaceful means. But the lack of revolutionary leadership, the absence of a proletarian party and the differences between the Convent participants, notably between its two principal factions represented by the followers of Zapata and Villa, enabled the bourgeois-latifundist bloc to retain the initiative, defeat the disunited forces of the Convent and emerge victorious.

V. M. MASSON. Handicraft Production Under the Primitive Communal System

A close study of archeological materials, ethnographic data and written sources of the Ancient East enables one to speak of three stages in the development of handicraft, production after the transition to agriculture and cattlebreeding. At the first stage, in the neolithic era, domestic crafts were distributed between separate families and a stable stratum of professional craftsmen was still nonexistent. At the second stage, in the period of transition from the neolithic to the early Bronze Age, the more complicated process of production results in the emergence of professional craftsmen working in the commune. The author proposes to call handicraft production of this type the communal craft. Lastly, at the third stage, in the period of developed and late bronze, and in places even in the early Iron Age period, domestic crafts are separated from agricultural production, there appear large shops and "handicraft communities," simple exchange develops into trade and becomes an inalienable and indispensable element of the economic structure of society.

The first thing that inspired me to this discovery is the shock that the researchers of superconductivity experience. And this is understandable. If the conduction current is formed by free electrons, then why does superconductivity increase when free electrons practically disappear, freezing to atoms. Secondly, this is the obstinacy of the Russian scientist, Dr. Fedyukin Veniamin Konstantinovich, who doubted that superconductivity exists. He writes: “Proceeding from the general scientific, ideological position and practice that there is opposition to every action and there is resistance to any movement, it can be argued that resistance and electric current along the conductor should be. Therefore, the so-called "superconductivity" electric current is not, and can not be. "

According to our hypothesis, the conversion of electrons and positrons into each other occurs by replacing the charge motion vector with the opposite vector. This is explained by the fact that all elements of the electron's magnetoelectric system are opposite to all elements of the positron's magnetoelectric system. And this opposite is determined by the vector of their movement in space. Therefore, it is only necessary to change the motion vector of one of the charges to the opposite vector, so immediately this charge turns into its antipode.

The article gives my short life story with a list of my discoveries. May the terrible moralists forgive me, I call these hypotheses discoveries because their logical connectedness and conformity with the materialistic dialectic of thinking does not allow to doubt that truth has been found here.

I wrote this article when I was 33, and I, who did not understand anything in physics, but who had logical thinking, were outraged by those alogisms and paradoxes that flowed from Einstein’s logic of relativity theory. But it was criticism at the level of emotions. Now, when I began to think a little bit in physics, and when I discovered the law of the difference of gravitational potentials, and based on it I built a five-dimensional frame of reference, it is now possible to prove the inaccuracy of Einstein’s theory of relativity at the level of physical laws.

istory make the masses. But the masses are ruled by leaders. The influence of an individual on the development of social processes is the greater, the greater the influence this personality has on the consciousness of individuals, as well as on the social consciousness of groups, classes and nations. The formula of Marx's social progress — the developing productive forces of society outgrow their production relations, throw them off and give birth to new ones — true, but only with Lenin's amendment: man is the main productive force of humanity.

The fundamental difference between a herd of animals and a human society is the presence of social laws formed by the consciousness of people in human society. Anthroposociogenesis is the process of forming into the consciousness of hominids of social laws, through the indefinite and combinational variability of genotypes with the elimination of those hominids that are not capable of subjecting their activity to laws.

Comparing all that is united by the concept of "mine" with all that is united by the concept of "not mine" the concept of "I" is born. Here begins the development of the individual consciousness of modern man, here began the development and individual consciousness of fossil people. It also began its development and public power, which initially could not have any other form, as soon as the form of protection of a mother who realized her motherhood to her children. Both individual consciousness and public power originate in the form of legal consciousness, and, first of all, in the form of awareness of the issues of belonging of certain objects to certain individuals, that is, in the form of awareness of the concepts "mine is not mine", "my child is not my child".

Dialectics is often called the tool of knowledge of nature. But, in the opinion of the author of this article, this tool is still as imperfect as the scissors would be imperfect, without the central screw uniting the two blades of this tool. This "cog" in dialectics is the fact that the "struggle" of opposites, which is the driving force behind the development of all processes of nature, is not absolute. "Struggle" is born when the dialectic system deviates from the state of equilibrium, and the goal of this "struggle" is to restore the lost equilibrium of the system.
