- DescriptionThe Communist States in Disarray, 1965 1971 was first published in 1972. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital techlogy to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.Through a survey and analysis of recent developments in the communist states and in their relations with one ather and with other nations this volume provides a revealing picture of a changing communist world. Indeed, as the book makes clear, it is longer appropriate to think of the communist countries as one world, since a major development during the period covered in this study has been the disintegration of the communist molith and the reemergence of separate national entities in Eastern Europe.The sixteen chapters by fifteen contributors provide studies of the individual communist states as well as several chapter-length discussions of general trends and patterns. The contributors also project the likely course of developments for the rest of the 1970s. Throughout the book the twin themes of an aggregation of the Si-Soviet conflict and the spread of nationalism point to the conclusion that the communist states are w in disarray.The contents: Patters of Political change, Teresa Rakowska-Harmstone; Polycentrism in Eastern Europe, Adam Bromke; The Si-Soviet Dispute, John W.
