    A good book, but not a very good author

    Turgid historical sociology filled with gross polemical flourishes Example on p 205 in his chapter on the fall of the Soviet Union, the author uses some U N population statistics to point to a dramatic fall in population in post Soviet Russia He concludes The atrocities of markets are not so visible as those of plans, but the suffering and the death rates may be similar.To grasp just how crude this reasoning is, ask yourself this question if there were adjustment problems in South Africa in the immediate transition from apartheid to multi racial democracy, how likely is it that an academic would remain in good standing if s he blamed the African National Congress rather than the distortions in apartheid itself for those adjustment problems
