Twentieth Century Communism

ISSN 1758-6437

Twentieth Century Communism is a peer-reviewed journal, published twice a year which provides an international forum for the latest research on the subject and an entry-point into key developments and debates not immediately accessible to English-language historians. Its main focus is on the period of the Russian revolution (1917-91) and on the activities of communist parties themselves. However, its remit will also extend to the movement’s antecedents and rivals, the responses to communism of political competitors and state systems, and to the cultural as well as political influence of communism.

The spectre of communism no longer haunts Europe, but we still need to understand its history without fighting old battles or waging new ones. Twentieth Century Communism provides an excellent platform for the post-communist history of communism.’ Donald Sassoon

Twentieth Century Communism has quickly become an indispensable forum for those interested in communist history. It is fresh, lively, wide-ranging refreshingly free of polemics.’ Stuart Macintyre
