"Jan Winiecki, one of the best known and most accomplished Polish economists in the international arena, offers a comparative analysis of the steep ascent strategy of Communist planners to the forced industrialization strategies of the Third World. His overview, as the title suggests, carries a message for economists, political scientists, IR specialists, and to anyone interested in one of the eldest questions in comparative analysis: why some nations fail and others strive? A must read for anyone interested in what is relevant for the real world."
