So you need efficiency too. Ok, calculate the bounding rectangles of both polygons. If the bounding rectangles don't overlap, neither polygon contains the other, so you can skip the more expensive test.
If they do overlap, check if each polygon contains points of the other in the overlap region. If polygon B contains some points of polygon A, but not others, then B doesn't contain A.
