Brzezinski…is uniquely qualified to sift the scattered and often seemingly contradictory data on this subject… [T]he volume is marked by unusual insight, richness of information, and stimulating thought.The New York Times

Brzezinski’s definitive work on the rise and dissolution of the Soviet Empire in Eastern Europe…is compellingly lucid, unfolds effortlessly, and remains happily unencumbered by jargon.

An original and incisive analysis of the dynamics of leadership in the Communist camp and of the national factors that condition this leadership.American Historical Review

This distinguished book analyzes the origins, evolution, and fragmentation of the once unified Communist world. Though the focus is still on relations between the Soviet Union and the East European countries, there is an expanded treatment of the Sino–Soviet dispute.

This is a masterful account of the interaction between ideology and power among the Communist states.Current History
