One of the central themes of politics in the 1980s was the rolling back of the state's economic borders, placing greater emphasis on the role of individual choice and markets allocating resources. This book is a collection of papers, largely specially commissioned, which assess this theme, and which have been written by economists and political scientists. * Contributors: Dieter Helm, Alan Ryan, Wilfred Beckerman, Amartya Sen, Partha Dasgupta, John Gray, Robert Skidelsky, Gillian Peele, Christopher Allsopp, John Kay, Andrew Dilnot, Colin Mayer, and Stephen Smith.
`This book should be foremost on the reading list of Eastern European economists attempting to understand market economies.' Kyklos 'The general standard of these papers is high. They are clearly written, free of technicalities, and judicious.' Robert Sugden, Economic Journal
