Contemporary Russia and the Struggle to Build Communism

Russia in the 20th century was the site of enormous upheavals the Bolshevik Revolution, the massive industrialization, the Great Patriotic War, the Cold War, the breakup of the Soviet Union, and the Yeltsin era. The Putin presidency (2000-present) poses particularly difficult political and theoretical problems for imperialists and Marxists alike. to review imperialism’s (U.S.) incessant lying attacks on ex-USSR/Putin, see this source;
For 30 years Sharon Tennison, with high marks for her work in particular by some Left-ists, talked to Soviets/Russians and U.S. Americans to try to bring them together, to prevent mutual atomic bombing. Her work took a surprising turn, one that needs examination by us. Her report is The Power of Impossible Ideas: Ordinary Citizens' Extraordinary Efforts to Avert International Crises.
Two ICSS members will examine these factors from a Marxist perspective. Presentations by ICSS members Richard Fallenbaum, a retired tech worker, and Norma Harrison, a woman, mother, public school teacher, wife, electronics journey-one, Realtor.
