3rd ed. rev.

The final edition of a valuable reference work documenting the story of Communism from its beginnings to its amazing collapse.

In the ten years since the last edition of this book, the world has undergone tremendous and, seemingly irrevocable change. With the virtual demise of the international communist movement and the increasing isolation of the remaining old-style regimes, communism has become history. Robert V. Daniels has updated his definitive work to chronicle the last years of international communism. It contains a new chapter with 22 documents pertaining to such key ideas and events as perestroika, the Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia, the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact, and the Tiananmen Massacre. Together with his Documentary History of Communism in Russia, this book provides a complete documentary history of the communist movement from Lenin and world revolution to Gorbachev and the end of world communism.

ROBERT V. DANIELS is Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Vermont and past president of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies. His most recent books are The End of the Communist Revolution (1993) and Trotsky, Stalin, and Socialism (1991).
