This is a highly readable and critical account of the growth and Stalinist degeneration of the Communist Party of Great Britain. Painstakingly compiled by two socialists from a different tradition, it includes an analysis of the CPGB errors in the 1926 General Strike and fascinating material on the party's attitude to the Stalinist trials of Russian Bolsheviks in the 1930s. A new introduction by Chris Bambery sets the work in a modern day context.
