ness of the Marxist economics that is no doubt a simultaneous topic o f instruction. The student could still require supplementary instruction in techniques such as programming and econometrics, which I am sure are available to economics students. About all one could ask for in addition, from the perspective of purely professional training for the economist, would be surveys of the incentives literature and a good exposure to applied studies in a field or two. Matyas' work would be in the central place in such a curriculum and would generate economists whose skills and orientations would probably be very like the products o f Western curricula. And that may well be what is going on. Benjamin Ward University o f California, Berkeley Maria Hirszowicz. The Bureaucratic Leviathan: A Study in the Sociology o f Commun- ism.
