Editorial Reviews

Political Studies Review
This collection does justice to the intellectual legacy of one of the pre-emiinent thinkers of the twentieth century.
The Russian Review
Totalitarianism and the Prospects for World Order is...an impressive intellectual autobiography of a very interesting man. For those wishing to explore his work further, the book concludes with a complete bibliography. Alexander Shtromas's insight, scholarship, and defense of human rights and human dignity will be missed by the profession.
