Australian Left Review


Eric Aarons


This is an important but difficult book. It is important because it is a serious effort to grapple theoretically with the nature of the societies now existing in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union.

It is difficult because it is dense, very European in style, and assumes that the reader is familiar with European theoretical traditions and with the works of individual scholars such as Max Weber.
