Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is a mystery to me that this remarkable collection of essays is hard to find, almost out of print. Anyone interested in Russia, economic development, and economic history -- and especially any combination of these -- will find thought-provoking analysis and discussion in every chapter. Most of the book concerns Russia, but there are applications of the author's thinking to the economic history of Italy and Bulgaria as well. And there are bonuses demonstrating the wide-ranging interests and scope of the author: a fascinating chapter on the treatment of economic development in 19th century Russian intellectual history, a chapter on Dr. Zhivago, and two chapters on what we can learn about Soviet economics and society from Soviet novels. This book is economic history -- and historical writing -- at its best.
