The author's purpose is to show that social change, particularly under the impact of the scientific-technological revolution, rendered invalid some of Marx's theories, changed the composition and relations of classes and created the need for democratic reform in the Soviet Union, eastern Europe (still under communist regimes at the time of writing) and China. The argument is sound but the book is sketchy and a bit thin. Brucan, who had a role in the Romanian revolution of 1989, says very little about developments in his own country.
