The lack of freedom, the drab monotony, the deathly sapping of life these regimes have on their inhabitants are clearly delineated by Dalrymple who visits a range of countries where the Marxist experiment has been tried, and found severely wanting. ------ Highlights include a visit to a North Korea department store: fascinating in its depiction of a socio-economic system that has long taken leave of basic human needs and occupies a surreal hyper-reality well along the 'wilder shores of Marx'.
