1 Review
A unique collection of essays that provides alternative ways of thinking about economic issues and addresses new questions about radical social and economic change that have arisen in the post-Soviet era. Striking analyses by some of the most sophisticated thinkers in the field discuss labor, class and gender, development, and the environment in a presentation accessible to the nonspecialist.

Authors represented include Heidi Hartmann, Stephen Marglin, Kenneth Boulding, Alec Nove, Laurence Harris, Howard Sherman, David Gordon, Thomas Weisskopf, and Samuel Bowles.
