THE SOCIALIST ECONOMY examines both the ideas and the practical experiences which have influenced present-day conceptions of how a socialist economy should be organized and managed. Beginning with a brief account of the early socialist visions of a ¿new society,' Tom Bottomore goes on to consider the development of Marxist views, the debates within Marxism on the construction of a socialist economy, and the major arguments that have been brought against socialist planning.

"Professor Bottomore has put together an extremely useful piece of work--one that has a number of clear strengths. It is timely. Its subject matter is now of central importance to world politics....It takes us back over the general debate on the socialist economy and runs its eye over each major socialist economy in turn....Very few people have the range of expertise to write a general reflective piece of this quality....' --David Coates, University of Leeds
"This provocative volume provides an up-to-date, judicious look at what seems to be evolving in Eastern Europe--socialist democracy with a human face. An ambitious attempt at a broad reevaluation of socialist democracy, this book would certainly be an excellent text for any course in comparative economic systems...' --Lynn Turgeon, Hofstra University
