Social democratic parities facing the challenge of globalism. (Renovation and stability in modern society. Edited by A.A. Galkin, Moscow, 2000. European social democracy: problems and searches. Edited by A.A. Galkin, Moscow, 2001)
The review deals with the two books by the same team of authors headed by Professor Galkin. Both of them cover the research of the left wing forces response to the global changes in the world. In both of them an attempt is made to answer the question what is to be done to avoid social discontent often accompanying these changes.
The author highly appreciates the research of the national peculiarity of current processes as well as the generalization of the Western thought judgements on this issue. He also shares the opinion that the evolution of current social democracy in the course of its response to cardinal changes in the world is fraught with the danger to lose its identity.
