Abstract

Is revolution, as defined up to now, viable in the 1990s? Or have changes in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, as well as those in technology and in the organization of the world economy over the past decade, made obsolete the formulations that have sustained progressive thought since Lenin? How does the unraveling of the Soviet model at home and abroad relate to the triumphalism of capitalist ideologues? How to think about political discourse after 45 years of Cold War conditioning? Is the Cold War over, or is it now exclusively an issue between the North and South, the perennial battleground since the Second World War? How to talk about revolution, third world development, superpower relations in the period of transition to the twenty-first century?
