The Socialist System
Oxford University Press

The works listed in this bibliography, with a few exceptions, are not referred to specifically in the book. Nor was it possible to compile a full list. The selection had to be an arbitrary one because the book went to press only a very short time after the political turning point of 1989–90 in Eastern Europe.

The list is confined to works in English.
