The Alternative in Eastern Europe
The Alternative in Eastern Europe
By Rudolf Bahro
NLB/Schocken, 1979, 460 pp.

Bahro's devastating critique of the existing system in the U.S.S.R. and Eastern Europe had the effect of a bomb on the official Marxist intellectual establishment, particularly in East Germany, where he is now in prison. This translation of the original edition published in West Germany is to be welcomed.
