About this Item

This is the third enlarged and thoroughly revised and updated edition of the book which has been in continuing demand in the market since its first edition in 1986. New topics like globalisation, the collapse of the Soviet Union and disintegration of the once mighty Soviet bloc, and the economic reforms in China after the death of Deng Xiaoping have been dealt with at length. New materials have been brought in and new research works and debates have been referred ro. References and notes have been made more comprehensive and a detailed index has been appended for ready reference of readers. It will be of great help to students, researchers, journalists and lay public who are interested to known of the evolution of socio-economic systems since the beginning of human civilisation. It may help those who think that humanity has not reached `the end of history` and the collapse of the Soviet Union is just a temporary set back for the fight to build a better and just society. The book refers to the plausible reasons for the failure of the efforts to build socialism in the Soviet Union and it also takes not of the worldwide debate on it. It has brought in materials like the late South African thinker and activist Joe Slovo`s Has Socialism Failed?, which are not easily accessible. The book is of immense value to all those who are interested in social sciences and contemporary international developments. The author has tried to present both sides while dealing with controversies and topics which arouse great ideological and political emotions. A glance though the treatment of globalisation is sufficient to underline this. Contents:- Preface 1.
