About the Authors
  • The third volume of The Cambridge History of Communism spans the period from the 1960s to the present, documenting the last two decades of the global Cold War and the collapse of Soviet socialism. An international team of scholars analyze the rise of China as a global power continuing to proclaim its Maoist allegiance, and the transformation of the geopolitics and political economy of Cold War conflict in an era of increasing economic interpenetration. Beneath the surface, profound political, social, economic and cultural changes were occurring in the socialist and former socialist countries, resulting in the collapse and transformations of the existing socialist order and the changing parameters of world Marxism. This volume draws on innovative research to bring together history from above and below, including social, cultural, gender, and transnational history to transcend the old separation between Communist studies and the broader field of contemporary history.

    • Charts the rise of China as a global power and the collapse of Soviet socialism
    • Proposes new historical perspectives on the fifty year decline and eventual fall of Communist revolutions in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, and questions the continuing legacies of the Communist era
    • Written by a team of leading international contributors from a range of disciplines
