Product Details

Praise

“An unparalleled account of the Communist Party at the height of its theoretical power and influence.”
London Review of Books

“Raphael Samuel gave new meaning to the idea of history … He brought to the writing and popularisation of history a seemingly inexhaustible energy and creativity.”
—Gareth Stedman Jones, Independent

“Samuel was born to be an historian. He had the vital quality of living at the same time in the past, the present and the future. Everything interested him, from public health to colonial rebellion and from street lighting to street fighting.”
Times

“You can’t know the times without knowing the party, and Samuel makes an excellent guide to it.”
Guardian

“Shows Samuel at his very best as both a historian and writer.”
Tribune

“The best book on the subject”
—Martin Kettle, New Statesman
