Summary

Strayer's The Communist Experiment is part of a McGraw Hill's World History Series, designed to introduce readers to particular issues that have been significant on a global scale. This book offers an accessible, comparative, and thematically complete treatment of the "communist experiment," based on the idea that communism represents a unique lens through which to view the history of the 20th century on a global scale. Because communism relates to many other events and forces of the world at that time-world war, fascism, the rise the United States, decolonization, feminism, the rise of the Third World, revolution, and more-it provides an excellent frame for understanding those developments and their effects throughout the world.
