Abstract

ZENOVIA A. SOCHOR (Worcester, Mass., U.S.A.) NEP Rediscovered: Currrent Soviet Interest in Alternative Strategies of Development After years of oblivion, NEP suddenly arose as a topic of discussion in the mid-1960s and has since not only spawned numerous studies but has also pro- voked further debate among Soviet scholars. It is intriguing to examine why an economic program of the 1920s should once again inspire lively debate. It is also important to ascertain to what degree this renewed interest is related to Soviet strategies of development for the Third World. At least one Western scholar has noted recently that "the view on what is the Soviet model [of de- velopment]has changed considerably, and other, alternate models are being taken into account," among them being the NEP model. 1 In order to investigate these questions, this article proposes to conduct two lines of inquiry: (1) The terms of debate among NEP specialists. Do particular points of dis- sension come to the fore? Has the perspective on NEP changed over time'? What might have led to a reassessment of NEP? (2) The context and the content of the references to NEP made by Third World specialists. Does the current usage
