The New Class: An Analysis Of The Communist System (Hardcover)
This classic by an associate of Yugoslavia's Tito created a sensation when it was published in 1957 because it was the first time that a ranking Communist had publicly analyzed his disillusionment with the system.
Until his expulsion from the Communist party in 1954, Milovan Djilas was a vice-president of Yugoslavia and one of Tito's three highest aides. He was imprisoned by the Yugoslavian government from 1957 to 1961 and was returned to prison in 1962 because of the publication of Conversations with Stalin. Writing both in prison and out, he produced several important and popular critical studies of communism as well as short stories, novels, and personal memoirs. He died in 1995.
