The Totalitarian Temptation
The Totalitarian Temptation
By Jean-François Revel
Doubleday, 1977, 311 pp.

Another hard-hitting tract by a well-known French writer who has little patience for what he considers left-wing softness on Stalinism. He sees communists playing on liberal gullibility and criticizes the benign or relaxed view of Eurocommunism. A controversial, timely book.
