Self-Management in Yugoslavia and the Developing World

Self-Management in Yugoslavia and the Developing World

By Hans Dieter Seibel and Ukandi G. Damachi

St. Martin's, 1982, 316 pp.

The Yugoslav experiment in socialist self-management continues to interest and even dazzle many who are looking for alternatives to the social order they see in the capitalist West or Soviet bloc. This relatively uncritical study by a German and a Nigerian scholar gives Yugoslavia's system high marks for combining democracy, egalitarianism and efficiency. They find it a promising model for the Third World, even though the attempts certain countries have made in that direction, which they examine in the latter part of the book, have had scant success.
