The author contends that Soviet "political science" is more than a meaningless charade, citing many academic publications to show how political practice (e.g., elections, pressure of public opinion, the role of the Party) is publicly discussed, within given limits, and may be subject to change as a result. An interesting thesis, well argued, but the book is written for political science types only.
