Multinationals From the Second World: Growth of Foreign Investment By Soviet and East European State Enterprises
By Carl H. McMillan
St. Martin's, 1987, 220 pp.
For years, Professor McMillan of Carleton University in Ottawa has been assembling the scattered facts about the investments of the Soviet Union and its East European allies in the Western industrial countries and the developing world. In this very valuable book he presents a remarkable amount of data, both aggregated and in descriptive detail. His concise analysis of the banking, trading, manufacturing and service companies focuses on organization, function and location; on differences among the Eastern countries; and on the place of this investment activity in their economic plans and policies.
