Beyond Glasnost: The Post-Totalitarian Mind

Beyond Glasnost: The Post-Totalitarian Mind Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Beyond Glasnost is a thoughtful exploration of the past decade's cultural and political ferment in Eastern Europe. It is also something else: an argument—in a deceptively unassuming, anti-ideological voice—about how to conceive of and move toward freedom; an argument that could hardly be more relevant to the roiling debates on the Western left."—Ellen Willis, Village Voice

Book News Annotation:

Combining social scientific and humanistic approaches, Goldfarb (sociology, New School for Social Research) portrays an alternative way of thinking and living in the Soviet bloc. His account of repression and liberation offers insight into the politics of culture, revealing the deep changes in Eastern Europe.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
