First published in 1961, The Soviet Economy is a well informed work which seeks to acquaint students with the structure and problems of the economy of the USSR. In a balanced and perceptive analysis, Alexander Nove describes the organisation of economic life and of the planning system, analysing the practical and theoretical problems within the institutional structure of the Soviet system, and introducing the student to Soviet economic ideas and concepts. The subject is then related to the growth of the Soviet economy and to the extent to which both the institutions and the problem

The economics of feasible socialism by Alec Nove ( Book )
48 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and held by 1,279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is not an anti-socialist treatise; on the contrary, Nove seeks to identify and define a 'feasible socialism', conceivable in the lifetime of a child already conceived, which avoids far-fetched or Utopian assumptions and the deformations of 'actually existing socialism' of the Soviet species. The final part of the book outlines a possible efficient and human socialism, and examines objections to these ideas from the Left and the Right
Glasnostʹ in action : cultural renaissance in Russia by Alec Nove ( Book )
24 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1991, Glasnost in Action: Cultural Renaissance in Russia is a comprehensive portrait of a society in transition as Professor Nove reflects on the changes taking place in the USSR at that time. While in English, Glasnost means 'openness', the author questions what 'openness' actually means in the USSR. How is Soviet culture - their art, literature, theatre, music and social life - affected by the new freedom of speech and thought that resulted from Glasnost? Was it Gorbachev's power and charisma that propelled Glasnost or would it build up enough momentum in Sovie
The Soviet Middle East; a communist model for development by Alec Nove ( Book )
28 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1967, The Soviet Middle East provides an analysis of the economic and political status of the national republics of Central Asia and Transcaucasia, which were, at the time of the book's initial publication, a part of the Soviet Union. The authors analyse their economic achievements, as well as their rapid progress in health and education, comparing their situation with that of their non-Soviet neighbours and indeed with the rest of the USSR. They seek to define the relevance of the Soviet planning system and Soviet ideology to the development of these countries, and also to
Political economy and Soviet socialism by Alec Nove ( Book )

First published in 1979, Political Economy and Soviet Socialism is an integrated selection of papers written over the past 12 years of Russian history, which offers a unique insight into some important and controversial issues. Professor Nove discusses the ideas of some of the leaders of the Russian revolution (Lenin, Trotsky and Bukharin), the political economy of socialism and the problems of the contemporary USSR. The author addresses the role of traditional Russian ideas in shaping the Soviet Union's social structure and the conceptual problems involved in defining its ruling s

Efficiency criteria for nationalised industries by Alec Nove ( Book )
18 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1973, Efficiency Criteria for Nationalised Industries asks by what criteria we should judge the efficiency of nationalised industries, what we mean by saying they should be run commercially and where the public interest should lie. In this work, Professor Nove believes we answer these questions incorrectly due to a lack of understanding of economic theory and a desire to relate real world economics to that of the text book. The author says many economists, in a world of indivisibilities, complementarities and systems, persist in thinking in terms of one-dimension
