The theory of automatic control, in which Russia and the Soviet Union have played a major rôle for over 100 years, offers a fascinating case study of the two-way flow of scientific and technical information. The paper will concentrate on three periods: the late 19th and early 20th century (when Russian scientists and engineers tended to publish in both Russian and western European languages, normally French and German); the mid 20th century (when contacts were often frowned upon in the Soviet Union, and could even be dangerous); and the Cold War (when Russia and the West jockeyed for scientific superiority).
