Kurt London, who feels strongly about the subject of the continuity of Soviet policy, devoted to revolution and conquest since 1917, and the failure of the statesmen and people of the West to understand it, has been writing and editing books for years in order to set the record straight and clarify the issues for the future. His contributors to this volume, a revised and expanded version of an earlier one, share his approach in greater or lesser degree (generally lesser rather than greater); they include Leonard Schapiro, Adam Ulam, and others of high reputation in the field.
