Summary

Based on personal experience of life in the Soviet Union Nove explains the phenomenon of Stalinism and its aftermath. In highly readable style, Professor Nove traces the origins of Stalinism, analyzes its nature and achievements, examines the process of destalinization which followed Stalin's death, and explores the evolution of the Soviet system under Krushchev and Brezhnev. Stalinism and After is not a biography; it is a study of the effect of the political personalities of one man and his successors on the development of Soviet history. It is within this context that Professor Nove examines the new thinking of Gorbachev and the now-familiar catchwords of his regime: perestroika, glasnost, demokratizatsiya, and uskoreniye.
