Part of the McGraw-HillExplorations in World History Series,The Communist Experimentoffers 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 of the United States, decolonization, feminism, the rise of the Third World, revolution, and more--it provides an excellent pathway for understanding those developments and their effects throughout the world.
