Example text

This enables us to understand the consensuses built up around the extensive f louting of the rules and to see power not as being assigned to a single camp, that of the bosses, but as a relation of exchange between interdependent actors. 25 First, in the sphere of values, an enormous consensus prevailed around recognition of the value of full employment or egalitarianism. Then, in the public sphere, passive compliance and outward shows of accord were reproduced in ample measure in the ritualized events held in honor of the regime.

By contrast, the very high concentration of economic units—common, admittedly, to all the former Soviet-type countries, but more marked perhaps in the East German and Czech cases on account of their earlier industrial history—is able to explain the higher resistance to any modification of equilibria—economic in the case of foreign investors, or political in the case of decentralized redistributions. This is what the next three chapters will show. Political Economy—Soviet-Style Socialism 43 No doubt we should add to these factors the two decisive elements that have been present for almost 50 years: on the one hand, urbanization, which has seen significant upheavals, particularly in respect of the capital cities, though many fewer in the fabric of intermediate towns; on the other, education, with the almost total eradication of illiteracy and the massive spread of technical—and, to a lesser extent, university—education.

If some authors subsequently take the view that the nature of the regime changes, they do so on the basis of the accumulation of several factors:40 Stalin’s death in 1953 and the increased importance accorded to the body of higher party officials (the Politburo); the abolition of the Gulag and its transformation into a less violent system of repression; the pursuit of a different social equilibrium, still based admittedly on the unchanged principle of party domination, and still imposed by force, but depending also on the wider integration of a number of segments of the population into collective life, and hence more consensual.
