Gosizdat (State Publishing House)

Established in 1919, Gosizdat provided a base for the centralized plan to collectivize all private publishers and printers. While Gosizdat existed somewhat independent of the government after its formation, by 1930 it served as the base of the state publishing conglomerate, "Association of State Publishing Houses" (OGIZ), the entity that united all Soviet publishing houses under complete state control.
