This significant book casts light on much of the intellectual confusion that reigned between the wars. In it four ex-Communists (Ignazio Silone, Arthur Koestler, Richard Wright, Stephen Spender) and two former sympathizers (André Gide and Louis Fischer) tell why they were first attracted to the movement and why they finally left.
