Text: English, RomanianFrom Library Journal:
Western analysts have long argued--and Kremlin leaders have recently acknowledged--that economic, political, and social stagnation threatens the viability of the Soviet state and the future of the Communist movement. Many writers, such as Ed Hewett in Reforming the Soviet Economy: Equality versus Efficiency ( LJ 4/15/88), have examined Soviet problems and the solutions proposed in "perestroika," without committing to any firm predictions. In this book, Brzezinski, President Carter's national security adviser, looks at the history of Marxism, Leninism, and Stalinism, current Soviet problems, and the state of the global Communist movement, and argues that Gorbachev's reforms cannot revitalize a system that is in inevitable decline. Timely, understandable, and highly recommended.
