Plot of (2 x^2 - x^3)^(1/3)


I see in Calcul Diff=E9rentiel et int=E9gral, N. Piskounov, Editions 
MIR, Moscou 1970, on p. 210 the graph of (2 x^2 - x^3)^(1/3) with 
negative values for x > 2, something like :

Plot[Piecewise[{{(2 x^2 - x^3)^(1/3), x <= 2}, {-Re[(2 x^2 - 
x^3)^(1/3)],  x > 2}}], {x, -1, 3}]

When I plot this function with :

Plot[(2 x^2 - x^3)^(1/3) // Re, {x, -1, 3}]

I obtain positives values for x > 3. I don't understand why.
Thank you very much for your help !
