Communism and Social Democracy, 1914-1931
Communism and Social Democracy, 1914-1931
By G. D. H. Cole
St. Martin's Press, 1959, 2 pp.

Although death prevented Professor Cole from completing his monumental study, this fourth volume (in two parts) of his "A History of Socialist Thought" will stand as a major contribution. Dealing with the whole range of Socialist and Communist movements in Europe, in Asia and in the Western Hemisphere, it is probably the best single survey of the subject, despite the inevitable presence of disputable interpretations and conclusions.
