Socialism at the End of the Century-Reflections on an Epoch Passed

Reflections on an Epoch Passed Krishnendu Ray Ravi Sundaram The Russian Revolution of 1917 fashioned the contours of a new global epoch. The conclusive termination of this epoch by the events of 1989 and the transition to a new historical time have generated a crisis of Marxism. The project of renewal of Marxism and the identification of its sources demand a response in terms of a fundamental re-evaluation of the project undertaken in the name of socialism for the past seven decades: To this end the present essay makes an attempt to comprehend the crisis through ah examination of the developments in the Soviet Union since 1917.
