Summary
"This book is an unconventional reappraisal of Soviet law: a field that is ripe for re-evaluation, now that it is clear of Cold War cobwebs and is, as this book shows, surprisingly topical and newly compelling. Scott Newton argues here that the Soviet order was a work of law. Drawing on a wide range of sources - including Russian-language Soviet statues and regulations, jurisprudence and legal theory, English-language 'legal Kremlinology' - this book analyses the central significance of law in the design and operation of Soviet economic, political, and social institutions. In arguing that it was an exemplary, rather than aberrant, case of the uses to which law was put in twentieth century industrialised societies, Law and the Making of the Soviet World: The Red Demiurge provides an insightful account of the significance of modern law to the Soviet case and, in turn, the significance of the Soviet case for modern law"--
