image of Review of Socialist Law

If we ask what it is that controls persons working in the various institutions of a given country, we are confronted with a difficult question. A proper answer would require analysis developed from a variety of disciplines - law, economics, sociology, psychology - to name the most prominent. The answer would be a long one. But particular aspects of this universal question are important in their own right and can be answered more easily: this article will explore the place of local soviets as yet another control mechanism among a very broad range of control devices utilized by the Soviet government. The type of control referred to throughout should be read in the milder Russian sense of supervision or checking (kontrol') and not in the more dominating English sense of exercising directing or restraining power (which would be closer to rukovodit' or upravliat').
