This volume brings together a distinguished group of scholars working to address the puzzling durability of communist autocracies in Eastern Europe and Asia, which are the longest-lasting type of non-democratic regime to emerge after World War I. The volume conceptualizes the communist universe as consisting of the ten regimes in Eastern Europe and Mongolia that eventually collapsed in 1989–91, and the five regimes that survived the fall of the Berlin Wall: China, Vietnam, Laos, North Korea and Cuba. The essays offer a theoretical argument that emphasizes the importance of institutional adaptations as a foundation of communist resilience. In particular, the contributors focus on four adaptations: of the economy, of ideology, of the mechanisms for inclusion of potential rivals, and of the institutions of vertical and horizontal accountability. The volume argues that when regimes are no longer able to implement adaptive change, contingent leadership choices and contagion dynamics make collapse more likely.

Recensione:

“Is the difference smarter leaders? Luckier circumstances? Deeper ideological beliefs? Structural flaws or assets? Political strategies of limited opening versus inopportune repression? Differential impact of the international system? This splendid team of authors thoughtfully sheds comparative light on the opaque processes of the collapse or survival of communist regimes.” – Jorge I. Domínguez, Harvard University

“This is a terrific book. By using paired comparisons of communist regimes that collapsed in 1989–1991 and others that managed to survive, Dimitrov and his fellow authors provoke us to think in new ways about the durability of these types of regimes over time. In this way, the volume moves us beyond clichéd discussions about the trials of communism and challenges us to think systematically about what determines regime resilience and failure. I have no doubt that this book will provide important insights for future studies about the entire communist era.” – A. James McAdams, University of Notre Dame

“Communism has a past, but does it have a future? In this fascinating study, Martin Dimitrov has assembled an impressive set of leading international scholars to examine the staying power of the communist party-states that weathered the 1989–1991 denouement of the Soviet Union and its client states. The result is a theoretically insightful and empirically rich study in comparative politics and Leninist style systems. The volume leaves the reader with the sense that we have not seen the end of collapsing communist-type regimes.” – David Shambaugh, The George Washington University and The Brookings Institution

Descrizione del libro:

This volume provides an explanation for the surprising resilience of communist autocracies, including the ten regimes that ultimately collapsed in 1989–91 (the Soviet Union, Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Yugoslavia and Mongolia) and the five regimes that persist under communist rule to this day (China, Vietnam, Laos, North Korea and Cuba).
