NOVOSTI FET:

Baveći se temama poput filozofije i povijesti socijalizma, socijalizmom Marxa, Lenjina, Ghandija, Mao Zedonga i Tita, ekonomikom socijalizma te rođenjem i padom Jugoslavenskog samoupravljačkog socijalizma, autori nude neortodoksni pogled na neke aspekte socijalizma u skromnom pokušaju prikazivanja njegove logične utemeljenosti u povijesnoj perspektivi. Djelo kojim se Soumitra Sharma vraća svojoj 'pravoj ljubavi', a to ja povijest ekonomske misli trebala bi biti neizostavni dio vlastite knjižnice svakog 'ozbiljnog' društvenjaka, ali i svakog intelektualca koji promišlja o tome gdje je društvo bilo i kuda to isto društvo ide.

Početak 2019. godine predstavlja novi pogled u staru priču za našeg profesora emeritusa Soumitra Sharmu. Nakon nekoliko burnih autorskih godina i knjiga poput Economics in an Awkward Corner: Collected Works (2015), Soumitra Sharma: My Life Story (2015), 3 Essays on Ancient Civilizations (2018) te Some Briefs on Ancient Civilizations (2019), Soumitra Sharma ponovno nas oduševljava objavom knjige u ko-autorstvu s Matom Mikićem naslova The Lost Cause: Socialism Drifted in Oblivion (2019) koja predstavlja svojevrsnu refleksiju esencije socijalizma kao društveno-ekonomskog sustava koji je 'kliznuo u zaborav'. Knjigu možete pronaći u knjižnici FET-a.

Iz recenzije

This is a kind of book which must be read deeply, brooded over, assessed internally and argued externally. In a book that is enormously scholarly, though completely unassuming in its erudition, and so persuasive through the formal opinions and clarity of conclusions, authors Mato Mikić and Soumitra Sharma in an eclectic manner present their economic interpretation of the history of socialism, for it has been, as they point out firmly in the title, ‘drifted into oblivion’. The correct interpretation of history is important because it is bearing our future conduct. The virtue of this work is that authors traced causal relations between economic and non-economic events by tumbling theoretical premises of socialism with purely empirical viewpoints that came out of scientific proficiency and experience of living in the age of socialism aspirations. Authors, proven men of penetrating intellect, the keenest scientific sensibility and a predilection for theoretical reasoning, found unlimited material for social phenomenon called Socialism. Whether the reader inclines towards this topic (and/or authors’ comprehension of the philosophy and history of socialism) or not, he cannot fail to find this book absorbing.
