The Russia Complex: The British Labour Party and the Soviet Union

By Bill Jones
Manchester University Press, 1978
229 pp.

A short readable account of the enchantment with which much of Labour viewed the Soviet experiment - though not the British Communist Party - and the slow postwar disenchantment that Ernest Bevin demanded and Stalin facilitated. A sensible contribution to the always fascinating study of left-wing perceptions.
