The Notes in Defence of a Commitment, dealing with the why and how of the collapse of Soviet Union's 'actually existing socialism', its implications and the question of socialism in our time and recognised as a pioneering work One of the most important, if not the most important book we have read a key to all that is going on in our world today if there were a required reading list for the US left, this should be on it", and so on-is now being published in six separate volumes. This volume deals with the failed revolutionary experiment in the Soviet Union. The overriding concern is that in the absence of a Marxist explanation of what has happened in the erstwhile Soviet Union, it is socialism's enemies' explanation-'socialism has failed', 'Marxism is dead', etc. which will continue to prevail.
