Dealing with topics and perspectives generally neglected by American sociologists, Hollander focuses on the nature of socialism and the reasons for Marxism's appeal among Western intellectuals. In his new introduction to updated essays, never before published in book form, he also addresses issues of enduring interest in both socialist and pluralistic societies. These include relationships between the private and the public, techniques of social and political control, the timeless tension between professed value and observed behavior, and the way systems struggle for a sense of purpose in the contemporary world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a book of twenty-two essays by Paul Hollander, published since 1963 in leading journals of sociology and Soviet studies. . . . [This] is a powerful book. . . . I admire the consistency of his reasoning, and I read with great pleasure his fine, ironic analyses of the intelligentsia and the paradoxes of East European life."

--Ivan Szelenyi, Contemporary Sociology
