Durante l. a. Guerra Fredda nessuno avrebbe immaginato che il crollo dell’Unione Sovietica sarebbe stato scatenato da dinamiche interne, e nemmeno che sarebbe avvenuto in relativa calma, senza grandi conflitti.
Il lavoro di Stephen Kotkin mostra che los angeles prima causa del collasso sovietico non è stata los angeles competizione militare ma, paradossalmente, il nucleo ideale dell’ideologia comunista: il sogno di un socialismo dal volto umano capace di migliorare los angeles vita dei cittadini senza rinunciare ai principi di giustizia e uguaglianza. Le riforme neo-liberali non sono mai kingdom davvero messe in atto nella Russia post-sovietica, né avrebbero potuto esserlo, considerato il fardello dell’eredità sovietica in ambito istituzionale, politico, economico e sociale.
Il libro ricostruisce in modo chiaro e conciso il dramma di una superpotenza di 285 milioni di abitanti che si è sgretolata pur avendo a disposizione un immenso esercito, sostanzialmente fedele allo Stato, e uno spaventoso arsenale di armi nucleari e chimiche. E lo ha fatto evitando non solo l’Apocalisse, ma anche esplosioni di violenza potenzialmente destabilizzanti according to l’intero situation geopolitico internazionale.
