"REQUEST TO READERS"[edit]

Section title by --Ludvikus (talk) 10:19, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

One of the common feature of all Progress books were their "REQUEST TO READERS".The request went as follows " Progress Publishers would be glad to have your opinion of this books, its translation and design and any suggestions you may have for future publications. Please send all your comments to 21 Zubovsky Boulevard, Moscow, USSR." The Progress Publishers were specially famous for their "Short History of USSR" and their ABC series (ABC of Party, ABC of Socialism, ABC of Dialectical Materialism etc)--Muaztrek 03:36, 11 July 2006 (UTC)Muaz Jalil Bangladesh

I copied this recently added excerpt from the article here and reworded it in the article. Feel free to reword this inf. in a different way from my one, if necessary. Cmapm 04:03, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
Muaztrek said this in the article and I copied it from there, removed his signature from the article and slightly reworded it there. Is it clear now, Ludvikus? Cmapm (talk) 01:26, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

I have a copy of a book from them which has the address as 17 Zubovsky Boulevard, Lenin - The State printed in 1984 90.204.195.133 (talk) 14:35, 28 May 2016 (UTC)


I'm interested in seeing this article expanded.[edit]

Couldn't we begin by including a list of titles? I've got two of their books in my hands right now:

How Socialism Began: Russia Under Lenin's Leadership 1917-1923 by Y. Ambartsumov; translated from the Russian by David Fidlon, first printing 1977 -- Как Начинался Социализм Россия При Ленине В 1917 - 1923 гг, Е. Амбарцумов, издательство "Молодая Гвардия" 1974 г.

Road to Samarkand by John Summers, published 1986

I would like to create new articles for these books, I suppose, but won't take the time to do so. If I do, I suppose I'll come back here, link them, and hopefully thus give some momentum to a proper fulfillment of this article on Progress Publishers.

I would like to see the article expanded significantly. -- Thanks, Kirez --Kirez 20:38, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

I'm holding another -- Karl Marx and Modern Philosophy (1868), by FV Konstantinov. Llamabr (talk) 18:44, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

And Quiet Flows the Dawn? Really? —Psychonaut (talk) 10:23, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, was in a hurry when I was typing. You know it's And Quiet Flows the Don. Olegkagan (talk) 04:38, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

POV[edit]

The article doesn't inform about censorship and other context.Xx236 (talk) 09:52, 1 December 2010 (UTC) "REQUEST TO READERS" - sure they were looking for spies, but noone from abroad was able to influence the texts.Xx236 (talk) 10:02, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

could some this publishers books be used as reliable sources in Wikipedia?[edit]

please explain why or why not. Darkstar1st (talk) 10:43, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
