This history is significant evidence of how an actually existing non-socialism is forced to try to invent something not unlike our model of ‘democratic market neo-communism’. Lange’s challenge to Mises is classic but it hard to understand how the dogma of markets has persisted so long.
There are many books on ‘market socialism’ and that genre is related to but not the same as our DMNC model.
Polish economists like Oskar Lange and Michał Kalecki produced highly creative models of how a socialist system could work, balancing equality and efficiency. But Poland’s Communist regime neglected their ideas, sowing the seeds of its eventual demise.
