What is the role of socialist states in the capitalist world economy? How do the dynamics of capitalism distort and limit national economic planning as an instrument of socialism? Answers to such questions, based on the world-system perspective, are propounded and attacked in original essays. Histories of particular states, including the Soviet Union, Vietnam, Jamaica and Eastern Europe, are also examined.
