Perestroika: From Marxism And Bolshevism To Gorbachev
Perestroika: From Marxism And Bolshevism To Gorbachev
By Svetozar Stojanovic
Prometheus Books, 1988, 167 pp

Very little about Gorbachev and his present problems, but very much on the general crisis of Marxism, its theory and practice, which provides the context for judging both the past and the future of the Soviet Union, Poland, Yugoslavia and other liberalizing but still "statist" societies. It is a stimulating and, in many ways, original critique by a well-known Yugoslav political philosopher of the Praxis school.
