Class Struggles in the USSR: Second Period, 1923-1930

By Charles Bettelheim
Monthly Review Press, 1978
640 pp.
Purchase

The second volume of Bettelheim's sweeping history of social and ideological "formation" in the Soviet Union under Lenin and Stalin. The approach, Marxist and tied to concepts of class, may be narrow, but the author's erudition and analysis are impressive. (The first volume, on the 1917-1923 period, was noted in Foreign Affairs, April 1977.)
