Just finished:


An excellent book, I was able to follow it even though I'm not overly familiar with the subject. I especially liked the extent Priestland explored the satellites and the third world Communist parties (I must say I was absolutely ignorant of African Marxism prior to reading this book). I wish it had spent more time going over Western communist parties; besides France and Italy, hardly any space was lent to Communist parties post WWII, though I suppose that's because they were mostly too small to be relevant.

I'm still scratching my head about the last Zizek volume I read, but I decided to read another one, because even though the last one was kind of confused rambling, I still feel like I got something (though I'm not sure what) out of the last one.

I think it's hilarious that Zizek has his face next to Lenin, plastered repeatedly across the book's cover.

A rather old version of Maurice Druon's The Poisoned Crown. I have become very interested in The Accursed Kings as of now, so I'm planning to acquire all seven as I find them.

I just read The Kronstadt Rebellion by Alexander Berkman, great read that I very much recommend to my Bolshevist friends TNF and Snowstalker.


And the link:

I'll definitely look into it. At the same time, I would recommend Trotsky's Hue and Cry over Krondstadt, which explains that the rebellion was not a move to save the revolution from Bolshevik overreach, but actually a reactionary peasant uprising backed by the White Army.

I'll definitely read it, but it sounds hilarious.

I was right, it was pure propaganda against the the sailors of Kronstadt with out an actual argument other then the typical Bolshevik "Their Petty bourgeois Counter-revolutionaries!" and "If we let the Soviets be free, then they'll destroy themselves!".
