Michael Lebowitz’s The Contradictions of “Real Socialism”: The Conductor and the Conducted is mainly an old New Lefty’s argument about why the Soviet Union and the Eastern European socialist governments collapsed in 1989-91. Although it was published some seven years ago, with interest in socialism on the rise, books like this one are making the rounds once more as people grapple with questions about what socialism meant in the past and what it means today. That makes a retrospective review of the book worthwhile.
By the quotes in his title, “real socialism,” Lebowitz implies right away that Soviet socialism was not real, true, Marxist socialism. It was fake socialism.
