    An internal critique. Elliott measures Anderson against his own prior incarnations, against the constraints of the Marxist inheritance, and against his contemporaries in the movement. It is a useful reminder that Anderson fell prey to certain characteristic illusions of the Far Left—Khrushchevism, Third Worldism, Wilsonism, Studentism, Guevarism, Maoism—before settling at last, after the end of the socialist experiment, on world-historical pessimism.
