On Socialist Democracy (77 Edition)by Roy Aleksandrovich Medvedev
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Roy Medvedev demonstrates, in engrossing and sharp detail, how the vast gulf between Marxist-Leninist principles and official Soviet attitudes and procedures turned vital theory into hollow dogma. Focusing on the rigidities of official ideology, he makes brilliantly clear the ways in which an excessively centralized and cumbersome bureaucratic structure was disastrous for the economic, intellectual, and moral development of Soviet society--keeping it dangerously insular in an era of increasing internationalism.
From within the Soviet Union, a critique of the Soviet political system by the celebrated dissident scholar.
