Editorial Reviews

Review

“Outstanding Title…   This volume grew out of the author's collection of essays written in the early and mid-1980s on state power and poverty in Marxist-Leninist countries. It focuses on the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, China, Mongolia, Cuba, and Vietnam. Marxism promised elimination of poverty caused by capitalist exploitation and economic abundance for the masses in exchange for total sacrifice of freedom... [D]ocument[s] the extent to which Marxist governments, so eager to blame poverty on capitalism, have failed to eradicate poverty in their own domains. Clearly written and well documented, this timely study is recommended for academic and public libraries.”
