Opening The Soviet System

By George Soros
Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1990
163 pp.

George Soros, a highly successful financier born in Hungary, has a mission to help the cause of freedom and the transition from closed to open societies in eastern Europe. He devotes a large part of his book to a "theoretical framework" that is quite abstract, but in due course he brings his argument into the practical realm in describing his own activities in the educational foundations he now has flourishing in Hungary and elsewhere, in assessing the tasks facing the new leaders and in calling for large-scale and many-sided Western assistance if the transition is to be accomplished.
