The book provides in-depth, up-to-date treatment of transitional economies, such as Russia and China, and draws on the experiences of other East European transforming economies. As examples of capitalist systems, the author profiles the Japanese and Swedish economies and draws on the experiences of other contemporary Asian economies as well. A concluding chapter surveys the rise and fall of National Socialism and the German renewal after World War II.
