Section Description

The twentieth century was the century of totalitarianism. The twenty first century is, and will continue to be, the century of post-totalitarianism. Overcoming the legacies of totalitarianism has been a long and uneven process.  Former Warsaw Pact countries are still far from overcoming those legacies. The restoration of the late-totaliatarian elite in Russia, a restoration that defies the main "transition" theories that were introduced during the nieties, calls for an explanation.
