Reflections on writing the history of anti-communism
Jean-François Fayet, pages -

Abstract

The article offers an overview of anti-communisms – ranging across the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and across Eurasia and the US. It points to the ambiguity and diversity of the phenomenon, and the wide-ranging definitions of anti-communism, which occur partly because the term is so ideologically charged. It also discusses how anti-communism changed from a characterisation used by communists themselves to one that is used by historians in general.
