A critical reexamination of the pre-Gorbachev dogma on the prospects for socialism in developing countries. The book acknowledges the overriding fact that states that chose socialist orientation have experienced economic stagnation, political turmoil and bureaucratic strangulation. The author, a senior staff member of the Oriental Institute, U.S.S.R. Academy of Sciences, concludes that radical noncapitalist policies offer limited prospects compared to incremental change favoring private entrepreneurship. Although seemingly obvious, the book is a good example of the conceptual revolution underlying changing Soviet behavior in the Third World.
