Abstract:

"In this updated and expanded second edition, the radical classic Moments of Decision has been updated in the 20 years since it was first published. Reexamining observations made in the immediate rubble left after the fall of communism, Bronner blends political meditation, philosophical critique, and history lesson to illuminate the crises of radicalism that have defined the 20th and 21st century socio-political landscape. It is a critical part of the conversation surrounding socialist historiography, and the development of the West as we now conceive of it. With clear, accessible prose, Bronner's classic text is revived and revised in this volume, ideal for students, scholars, and any interested in political history, theory, and international relations"--

"Moments of Decision analyzes progressive struggle by focusing on seminal crises of the twentieth century and new developments that occurred in the aftermath of 9/11"--
