The first, in English translation, of seven projected volumes on the rise of the communist movement, put out by a high-powered editorial team headed by an alternate member of the Politburo. Presaging more, and more interesting, material to come, it covers the greater part of the nineteenth century and, not unexpectedly, highlights the theory and activities of the founding fathers, Marx and Engels.
