About this book


After the collapse of the Soviet Union, it appeared that the only option for developing countries was integration into the world economy. Written by a group of international experts, this book investigates the strategies deployed by Cuba and Vietnam to consider whether 'socialism', in some form, offers a viable development alternative.
