Overview

The Communist International was formed in Moscow in 1919 as a factory of world revolution, but was dissolved in 1943 without having led a single successful working-class uprising. This comprehensive new collection of essays uses many of the newly available Russian and East European sources to look again at the history of this most fascinating of political phenomena.
