Abstract : The textbook consists of two parts: 'A General Survey of the USSR' and 'A Regional Survey of the USSR'. The general survey of the physical nature of the USSR as a whole characterizes the basic geographic natural laws on the territory of the USSR, and the regional survey devotes considerable attention to the characteristics of the individual countries and the physico-geographic regions within these countries. The book differs from the first edition (AD-703 032) in that many sections of it have been revised and new chapters added. (Author)
