A companion volume to the author's Anarchists and Communists in Brazil, 1900-1935, this work tells of the life and deeds of the Communist Party in the time of Vargas. The ups and downs of Luis Carlos Prestes, the Comintern, and the Russian-inspired Aliana Nacional Libertadora beginning in 1935, are recounted, as is the 1935 revolt in Rio and the Northeast. Detailed and scholarly.
