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.
