About this item

Left-wing intellectuals in Britain and the US had long repudiated the Soviet regime, so why was the collapse of the Eastern Bloc experienced as a shock that destabilized their identities and political allegiances? What happened to a collective project that had started out to formulate a socialist vision different from both "actually existing socialism" and social democracy? This study endeavors to answer both questions, focusing on generational networks rather than individuals and investigating political academic journals after 1989 to paint the picture of a Left deeply troubled by the triumph of a capitalism unfettered by any counter-force.
