Provides an incisive account of the impact of socialism on the life and politics of Europe and the former Soviet bloc in the twentieth century. Ranging from Britain and France, to Italy and Russia, this book covers the origins of socialism and communism and its various offshoots in those countries where it had the most impact. Here is an exciting and concise history that provides the reader with a real understanding of the forces at work, and the people who were involved - the role and personalities of Stalin, Kruschev, Reagan, Mitterand, Wilson and Blair are all considered.
