With tens of millions of Soviet citizens eagerly absorbing and debating the vast outpouring of novels, books and articles, films and TV programmes about their past, the Politburo is deeply divided about how far the debate should go and what conclusions should be drawn from it. This book reviews the whole discussion about history and considers its impact on the Gorbachev revolution. The author questions whether the victory of Stalinism was inevitable, whether there was an alternative road to Socialism. He describes how even Lenin and his policies are now questioned. R.W.Davies has also written The Development of Soviet Budgetary System , Foundations of a Planned Economy, 1926-1929, Volume 1 with E.H.Carr, The Socialist Offensive: The Collectivisation of Soviet Agriculture, 1929-1930 and edited From Tsarism to the New Economic Policy and co-edited The Technological Level of Soviet Industry .
