Summary The twenty-seven contributors to this book address a fundamental question about the collapse of the Soviet Union: was the Soviet system's failure inevitable from its inception, or did the grave errors committed during its existence lead to its collapse? The essays address three major topics: ideology and the failure of the political system; the failure of the economic system and the rejection of the Soviet order by society; and the failure of a messianic ambition. This important volume is a mulitdisciplinary attempt to explain the events that ultimately led up to and caused the collapse of the Soviet Union.
