Lonely Ideas: Can Russia Compete?
getAbstract regularly publishes summaries of books on the BRIC countries – except for Russia. The book offers a rather stereotypical view, however, it is a curious attempt to investigate failures to commercialize innovations on a national scale, rather than corporate. We are going to ask for the rights to summarise the Russian translation; if granted, perhaps our summary can be used by other editorials as well.
We are considering the content you've suggested for a summary, and we'll inform you once that summary goes online. Please note that we secure rights for everything we summarize – this may take a while.
Sometimes, we decide against a summary later, because we prefer another, similar publication, or because the rights owners don't want us to summarize their content. We thank you for your understanding if that should be the case with your suggestion.
