The Red Flag
A History of CommunismBook - 2009
Oxford professor David Priestland tells the epic story of a movement that has taken root in dozens of countries across two hundred years, from its birth after the French Revolution to its ideological maturity in nineteenth-century Germany to its rise to dominance (and subsequent fall) in the twentieth century, and shows how Communism, in all its varieties, appealed to different societies for different reasons.
