Russia in the Context of Global Transformations
Capitalism and Communism, Culture and Revolution

In Russia in the Context of Global Transformations (Capitalism and Communism, Culture and Revolution) the authors focus on the dramatic changes in Russia’s socio-economic system over the past hundred years.

The contradictions of Russia’s triumphs and tragedies are studied in connection with shifts in the world economic system.

Basing themselves on the views of the Post-Soviet School of Critical Marxism, the authors show the causes and consequences of the main shifts in Russia’s development during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Topics addressed include the October Revolution, the contradictions of post-revolutionary development, the disintegration of the USSR, the collapse and stagnation during the post-USSR period and the prospects for overcoming contemporary problems.
