Controversially this book argues that the ruling party-state elite in the USSR itself moved to dismantle the old system. Topics discussed include: * the beginnings of economic decline in 1975 * Gorbachev's efforts to democratize and decentralize * the complex political battle through which the coalition favouring capitalism took power * the flaws in economic policies intended to rapidly build capitalism * the surprising resurgence of Communism. Research includes interviews with over 50 former Soviet government and Communist party leaders, policy advisors, new private businessmen, trade union leaders and intellectuals.

"Readers...will find a great deal of information on the real state of affairs in the Russian economy and the results of "shock therapy"; on the transformations post-Soviet society has undergone; and on the government and the opposition.... "Revolution from Above will be as valuable for Western radicals as for Russians and students of Russian history." -"In These Times ..."one of the best books yet to appear about what has happened in the former Soviet Union in this last tragic decade.... It is a good book because it is based on a careful, scholarly analysis of a laboriously collected treasury of facts.... This book is an eye-opener for anyone who is tired of the prevailing wisdom about today's Russia." -"Monthly Review "The account is distinguished from many others by its critical perspective, which is to be welcomed...." -Simon Clarke, University of Warwick, "Contemporary Sociology
