Format: Paperback
Powerful stuff; this book should be required reading for all Americans interested in understanding the deep psychological roots of today's American liberalism and its striking similarities to the ideology of socialism espoused by the likes of Marx, Engels, Trotsky, Lenin, and Pavel Axelrod.

A particularly interesting essay is Igor Shafarevich's "Socialism in Our Past and Future" - an essay which makes the case that totalitarian collectivism, e.g. socialism, has been found in large societies (e.g. Mayans, Incas, Ur, ancient Egyptians) throughout world history and is thus independent of geography in time. In other words, totalitarian collectivism is essentially mankind's "default" condition.

Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
This book was quite prophetic, (published in 1974) as it predicted many of the events that transpired during the emergence of the Soviet nations from the communist hegemony, such as inter-ethnic tensions and the difficulty of democracy being established in a people who were not used to it.
As other reviewers have stated, the book should be required reading for anyone who wants to have a true understanding of international relations today, as well as the gross injustices of socialism across the globe.
