Example text

His policies became increasingly radical, in part to stay ahead of his opponents. His reform communism only exacerbated the problems of what was already a system in crisis, and worsened the legacy facing the post-communist governments. It fell to his successors in Russia and the other republics to rebuild economies and to nourish the fragile shoots of democracy that perestroika had encouraged. We shall examine below the three main phases of the old regime in its death agonies. Rationalisation, 1985–6 In this phase some of the themes of Andropov’s authoritarian reform programme were revived.

Makashov, Al’bert 6. 00 Sources: ‘Soobshchenie tsentral’noi izbiratel’noi komissii po vyboram Prezidenta RSFSR’, Izvestiya, 20 June 1991; Pravda, 20 June 1991. 24 Fall of communism and rebirth of Russia and its role in the world, not simply as part of the USSR but as a sovereign state in its own right. 50 Yeltsin appealed to Russian patriotism against the communist regime, but at the same time offered a new synthesis of national self-affirmation and democratic aspirations. 2 The disintegration of the USSR Nothing destroyeth authority so much as the unequal and untimely interchange of power pressed too far, and relaxed too much.
