Western Marxism and the Soviet Union is a wide-ranging survey of debates about the nature of the Soviet Union. The “Russian Question” was an absolutely central problem for Marxism in the twentieth century. Numerous attempts were made to understand the nature of Soviet society. Here van der Linden describes the development of these theoretical contributions since 1917. The only book of its kind, this collection also features an exhaustive bibliography.
