Sociology and Psychology of Communism
Sociology and Psychology of Communism
By Jules Monnerot
Beacon Press, 1953, 339 pp.

A stimulating if somewhat chaotic analysis of Soviet Communism--a "twentieth century Islam." Although an extended philosophical "digression" in the French edition has been omitted in the English translation, the book is quite philosophical enough as it stands. The individual insights, however, are more impressive than the argument as a whole.
