The Aging of Communism

By Robert Wesson

Praeger, 1980, 168 pp.

Give Robert Wesson credit for bold thought and clear argument. He finds the communist world well into its age of decay, with a declining capacity on the part of the ruling parties to rule, with no prospect of a democratic or pluralistic alternative, sliding toward a common destiny with the less promising parts of the Third World. But it may take a long time.
