Another week, another book launch. This one is a collection of essays about Lord Harris of High Cross, tributes to his activity in bringing the ideas of free market to Communist and post-Communist countries. Published by the Centre for Research into Post-Communist Economies (CRCE), the slim tome (another one) is edited by the Centre's Executive Director, Lisl Biggs-Davison.
The tributes are fulsome and varied and the collection, as a whole, gives a very good idea of how the free-market think-tanks and new ideas in those countries that seemed to have no hope at all, enmired in Communism as they were, began to wake up. Ralph Harris was instrumental in waking them up and in providing them with a reason for getting out of bed and facing the day.
