  September 2000: Vladimir Putin and the Current Stage of the Stalinist Counterrevolution   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Revolution or counterrevolution is required to ensure the destruction of the old state apparatus so that it can make way for the new.
That the picture looks bleak and counterrevolution is gathering strength is undeniable (Putin is a crucial figure here), but so far it is without the social weight, adequate alternative state structures, or the accumulated capital to carry it through.
This counterrevolution is being driven forward by the dominant sections of the old state bureaucracy that attempts to transform itself into a new capitalist class by looting the socialized sectors.

 H-Net Review: Kirwin Shaffer on The Cuban Counterrevolution   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Building on Marx and historical materialism, he argues that a counterrevolution is the natural result of a revolution, so in Cuba this means that counterrevolutionaries are "the antithesis of this ideological position" of nationalism, anti-imperialism and socialism (p.
Most members of the counterrevolution's early decades were also members of Cuba's native elite, which had long submitted to and benefited from materially the country's dependence on the United States.
This meant that the counterrevolution had to be launched from foreign soil, i.e., the United States.

 Managing the Counterrevolution - The United States and Guatemala   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
In practice this meant the U.S. support of brutal Guatemalan leaders and the construction of a “parallel government”: a bureaucracy composed of U.S. economic and military advisers that undergirded the Guatemalan government.
The results of this U.S.-managed “counterrevolution” for Guatemala were disastrous.

 The Monetarist Counterrevolution   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
The majority view of the monetarist counterrevolution was shaped while it was ongoing by Harry Johnson's Ely Lecture, "The Keynesian Revolution and the Monetarist Counterrevolution" (Johnson, 1971).
Johnson saw the monetarist counterrevolution as a true intellectual revolution--one that renders the previous literature obsolete, irrelevant, and uninteresting as the post-revolutionary generation focuses on new issues and dismisses the old questions and answers as badly posed or simply incoherent.
Johnson also--relatively cynically--saw the monetarist counterrevolution as the triumph not of new evidence (or a reevalution of old evidence) but as the triumph of misleading rhetoric, and was not sure that it reflected an advance in knowledge.

We can, however, perhaps agree with them on several points: that general equilibrium is a precarious notion; that in reality it could never be attained; and that events taking place on the path to equilibrium must shape its final constellation.
Austrian economists must evidently establish themselves as a third force outside the counterrevolution and the neoclassical establishment against which it is directed.
Second, at times in the course of the counterrevolution, both sides present arguments with unmistakably Austrian implications of which their authors may be quite unaware.

 Hands Off Venezuela - The recall referendum in Venezuela: A crushing blow to the counterrevolution
The counterrevolution cannot afford to appear publicly in its real guise, but must disguise itself as “true democracy”, even though its real aim is to install a dictatorship in Venezuela.
On previous occasions when the masses defeated the counterrevolution there was a golden opportunity to carry through the revolution to the end and finish the power of the oligarchy once and for all.
The inevitable result was a new offensive of the counterrevolution.

 Revolution and Counterrevolution
I note with interest Pat Buchanan’s fine appreciation in his new book, The Death of the West, of the roles of Antonio Gramsci and the so-called "Frankfurt School" in bringing it about that the society-wreckers of the 60s are society’s rulers today (after the "long march through the institutions").

 Art in an Age of Counterrevolution, 1815û1848 by Albert Boime   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
This long-awaited third volume in the Social History of Modern Art series continues to challenge, as did previous volumes, conventional narratives of art history by upholding its premise that art cannot be divorced from its political and cultural moment.
Here, once more, Albert Boime produces an authoritative history of the development of visual culture amidst its full historical context, demonstrating the powerful role played by the artists and art of Romanticism amid the seething social dynamics of the time.
He is the author of fourteen books, including Art in an Age of Revolution, 1750û1800; Art in an Age of Bonapartism, 1800û1815; and The Art of Macchia and the Risorgimento, all published by the University of Chicago Press.

Kennedy, after the humiliation of the Bay of Pigs, looked and saw around him a hostile and threatening world.
Even though planning was begun in his administration, Eisenhower was a careful man, and even if he had been prepared to entertain the plan in principle, he almost certainly would have dismissed it as absurd in practice.

 Workers World [Sam Marcy]: Revolution and counterrevolution in Czechoslovakia (Dec. 7, 1989)
The capitalist press has published millions of jubilant words in articles, columns and headlines on the events in Eastern Europe, particularly in Czechoslovakia.
Notwithstanding the errors made by the Czechoslovak CP, the key factor in the current situation is the encouragement and support the Gorbachev administration has given to the rightwing.
What is happening in Czechoslovakia at this moment might have been avoided had it not been for the intervention of the Gorbachev regime, which opened wide the gates of counterrevolution in Poland and Hungary.

of 1953–1958 the colleagues who survived Kimpton’s counterrevolution and who esteemed the comprehensive, prescriptive aura of the early 1950s Faust-Ward version of general education sought to salvage as much as possible.
In a private letter to Kimpton in 1958 the historian William McNeill called for a complete rethinking of the College’s general-education curriculum, but in fact this was not to happen.

 Managing the Counterrevolution - The United States and Guatemala   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Yet we know far more about the 1954 coup itself than its aftermath.
This book uses the concept of “counterrevolution” to trace the Eisenhower administration’s efforts to restore U.S. hegemony in a nation whose reform governments had antagonized U.S. economic interests and the local elite.
Comparing the Guatemalan case to U.S.-sponsored counterrevolutions in Iran, the Dominican Republic, Brazil, and Chile reveals that Washington’s efforts to roll back “communism” in Latin America and elsewhere during the Cold War represented in reality a short-term strategy to protect core American interests from the rising tide of Third World nationalism.
