Kogiz (Bookselling Association of State Publishing Houses)

In 1931, the Central Committee ordered certain publications separated from its Association of State Book and Magazine Publications or, OGIZ-- the national publishing arm of the USSR. Under reorganization, the Booksellers Association of State Publishers, KOGIZ (Knigotorgovoe ob'edinenie gosudarstvennykh izdatel'stvo) and other printing and publishing entities were placed under the OGIZ banner.
