French Communism in the Era of Stalin: The Quest for Unity and Integration, 1945-1962

Synopsis

"A detailed examination of the Stalinist legacy of the French Communist party, covering the period 1945-62. More than a history of the party (on which numerous, more detailed works exist), this work is an attempt to place party history within the changing contexts, both national and international, of political life in France.... The present volume is likely to be of use to scholars attempting to understand the party's role in the immediate postwar period. For those interested in the dynamics of French politics, the author places considerable stress on the French Communist party as a 'functioning element' in the French political system." - Choice
