Reluctant Capitalists examines Russia's plodding, sometimes painful, journey toward a free-market. Through case studies, interviews and first-hand observation, Randall tells us of Russia's economic troubles and offers suggestions for making market reform work.
"Reluctant Capitalists is an engaging and well-documented book that captures Russia's complex transitional business and political environment. The vivid examples of Russian managers' business practices, challenges, and successes, confirm that Linda Randall gained the trust of her interviewees, and she skillfully weaves these experiences into valuable insights about the future of the market system in Russia." -- Sheila M.
