"'the enormous experience of the authors and the intellectual quality of their analysis make it a book which deserves to last'
William Outhwaite, University of Sussex, Political Studies, Volume XXXIX Number 1 March 1991"
"'The analysis presented in the book is highly penetrating. It remains of immediate practical relevance despite the acceleration in the pace of systematic change in Eastern Europe over the last year.'
Antoni Chawluk, University of St. Andrews, Scottish Journal of Political Economy"
"`This book is a welcome addition to the literature on Eastern European economies in particular, and the notion of an "economically feasible socialism" in general. It is well written and concise, with just enough background information on the history of economic development in Eastern Europe to prepare the reader for the authors' new contributions.'
