Publisher Description:
In the wake of the Soviet Union's collapse, it has become apparent that Sovietology failed, with a few praiseworthy exceptions, to understand the nature and fragility of the Soviet system. A Soviet Postmortem sets the Soviet experiment in a more realistic perspective. Krancberg emphasizes the importance of Marxist-Leninist ideology in formulating sociopolitical norms imposed on society by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Analyzing the realities of the Soviet regime, the author reveals the extent to which Soviet political culture was an artificial imposition with only slender roots in the life of Soviet society.
