Publisher Description

From the internationally acclaimed Oxford authority on Communism, a definitive history that examines the origins of the ideology, its development in different nations, its collapse in many of those countries following perestroika, and its current incarnations around the globe. The Rise and Fall of Communism explores how and why Communists came to power; how they were able, in a variety of countries on different continents, to hold on to power for so long; and what brought about the downfall of so many Communist systems. For this comprehensive and illuminating work, Brown draws on more than 40 years of research and on a wealth of new sources. Tracing the story of Communism from its 19th-century roots, Brown explains both its expansion and its decline in the 20th century. Even today, although Communism has been widely discredited in the West, almost a quarter of humanity still lives under its rule.
