Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reprinted from journals and other anthologies, 15 essays provide reflexive and distanced accounts of the fall of communism in eastern Europe than. They explore the characteristics of the regimes before 1989, the reasons for their demise, and the prospects for the future. Among the specific dimensions they consider are what socialism was and why it fell, the legacy of dissent, overcoming totalitarianism, the future of liberal revolution, the post-totalitarian blues, the velvet restoration, the neighbors of Kafka, and whether communism is returning.
