Hillel Ticktin has been one of the most controversial figures in Soviet studies for 25 years. His assertions that the Soviet economy was hopelessly inefficient, that the ruble was a sham, and that the elite was desperate once sounded outrageous. Ticktin consistently argued that perestroika would fail. In his view the USSR was and remained inherently Stalinist. It might lurch back and forth between reformist and reactionary leadership factions but, the system could not evolve, nor could it be restructured. Ultimately, it could only disintegrate, and when it did, the workers would hold the balance. This collection of essays offers a thorough sample of his views.

The Contradictions of Real Socialism

The Contradictions of  Real Socialism Author Michael Lebowitz

What was “real socialism”—the term which originated in twentieth-century socialist societies for the purpose of distinguishing them from abstract, theoretical socialism? In this volume, Michael A. Lebowitz considers the nature, tendencies, and contradictions of those societies. Beginning with the constant presence of shortages within “real socialism,” Lebowitz searches for the inner relations which generate these patterns. He finds these, in particular, in what he calls “vanguard relations of production,” a relation which takes the apparent form of a social contract where workers obtain benefits not available to their counterparts in capitalism but lack the power to decide within the workplace and society. While these societies were able to claim major achievements in areas from health care to education to popular culture, the separation of thinking and doing prevented workers from developing their capacities as fully developed human beings. The relationship within “real socialism” between the vanguard as conductor and a conducted working class, however, did not only lead to the deformation of workers and those elements necessary for the building of socialism; it also created the conditions in which enterprise managers emerged as an incipient capitalist class, which was an immediate source of the crises of “real socialism.” As he argued in The Socialist Alternative: Real Human Development, Lebowitz stresses the necessity to go beyond the hierarchy inherent in the relation of conductor and conducted (and beyond the “vanguard Marxism” which supports this) to create the conditions in which people can transform themselves through their conscious cooperation and practice—i.e., a society of free and associated producers.

One of the great issues still facing modern commentators is why they failed to anticipate the end of the Cold War in the late 1980s. This book, composed of original essays written by leading scholars from both sides of the Atlantic, explores this vexed problem by means of a critical interrogation of Soviet studies: perhaps the most controversial, and certainly the most policy-relevant, of all academic disciplines during the era of superpower conflict. To some now little more than a footnote in the intellectual history of the post-war period, Soviet studies for over forty years played a key role in shaping the West's understanding -- some would say misunderstanding -- of the nature of the Soviet system. But how fair are the charges now levelled against those whose task it once was to explain the strengths and weaknesses of the USSR? How far should they be held responsible for failing to forecast the demise of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War? And how much better have the experts done in explaining the dynamics of post-communist Russia? These are at least three of the large questions this innovative book seeks to answer.
