Review:

Filling a void in the literature, this book is beneficial reading for experts and non-experts alike -- Zbigniew Brezezinski, former National Security Advisor

This book of original scholarship exposes the ideological origins of socialist efforts at central planning and confirms that there is no alternative to the market for a modern economy -- Oleg Bogomolov, former director, Institute of Economics of the World Socialist System, USSR Academy of Sciences

Unlike any other book, this book provides the intellectual bridge between our past and future -- Yuri B. Kochevrin, member, Economic Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences
