This is a new course in Fall 2005, replacing “Politics and Society in
Russia I.” Govt 533 will examine the
creation of the Communist economic system and its social consequences,
focusing on the political priorities that drove economic policy. We will
look at the development of the Soviet model in the USSR and its
extension to Central Europe and China after World War II. We will also
devote attention to attempts to “reform” the communist model and the
short- and long-term consequences of reform efforts. [Comparative Government]
