Gorbachev's Struggle For Economic Reform

By Anders Aslund
Cornell University Press, 1989
219 pp. $38.50

The word "struggle" is apt. By searching through the economic literature and by intelligent use of Sovietology, Aslund is able to reconstruct the disagreements, debates and compromises that have marked the process of reform over the past few years. An impressive book, written with cool realism by a Swedish economist who draws on his experience at Sweden's embassy in Moscow in 1984-87.
