Since the fracturing of the international communist movement it has become necessary to observe the factions, the separate states and parties, and their relations with one another. Ten specialists describe here, with comparisons where useful, the "lines" and policies of the various ruling and nonruling parties in Europe and in Asia. The book is a welcome one at this stage, but, since the situation remains very much in flux, far from the last word.
