    One thought on “The Grand Failure: The Birth and Death of Communism in the Twentieth Century”

    1. What would you say if in 1989, 3 years into Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev s reign as General Secretary of the Communist Party and 3 years before the collapse of the USSR, a man wrote a book called The Grand Failure, the Birth and Death of Communism in the Twentieth Century What if he got it right, and predicted most of the probable outcomes of the Yeltsin reforms through 2000 Brzezinski is that man predicting the end of the USSR and the political economic low point of the Russian Soviet Federate [...]

    2. Amazingly prescient, written in 1988 Also a very nice summary of Soviet Russia history The passages on the former Warsaw Pact nations in the 70 s and 80 s vis a vis the USSR are especially useful.

    3. of all the predictions Brzezinski makes in this book the one that looks us straight in the eye is the Chinese model of communism and how he correctly predicted it as the one to survive I don t think he could afford to give away the game regarding Afghanistan wrt USSR falling but he makes it clear they were going down.If you are a Leninist this book should be on your shelf, for frequent doses of humble pie when you get carried away this is a clear dissection of Leninism and it pummels that theori [...]

    4. The Grand Failure helps you understand Russian and Chinese versions of Communism, their achievements and flaws The book was written before USSR passed into history, and what is left we know it as Russia Though Brezezinski did not predict the fall of USSR in clear words, his analysis makes it amply clear that he was looking at the possibility His observations about Chinese economic rise are than visible now, hence, Brzezinski s scholarly work has an all time value for generations to come.

    5. I purchased and read this book in hardback back when it was new I ran across it tonight in my library and I d say it s one of the all time enjoyable books I ve ever read Particularly for when it was published I remember one of my friends saying it was ridiculous because the USSR would have problems but never fail Even as things were clearly changing people refused to believe it It s a great book in my view then and now.

    7. top class cold war stuff Must read for all the inside and the whole perspective about the soviet union during that era And how hard the west tried to curb it Also tells about the good and bad of communism and why the socialist philosophy fell steeply because of a certain brilliant yet egotistical figures Cold War buffs, this is for you

    8. an outstanding book that analyses the reasons for Soviet union failure, this book expected the collapse of Soviet union before it actually happen, plenty of good analysis that can be applied on other contexts and similar ideologies at the end, dictators fail

    9. Spring 1989 was a bad time to publish a book looking at the future of Communism Within months his prognosis for the gradual decline of communism was largely out of date Interestingly he predicted the likely survival of China as a state capitalist society, managed by the Communist Party.
