Description
This book examines the "turn to the East" by the international communist movement in fostering world revolution after the success in Russia in 1917, which led to communist victories in China, Vietnam and Cuba after the Second World War. Based on a theorization of the building of revolutionary movements, this study critically assesses communist strategy and tactics using three key cases: China, India, and Brazil. While examining the foundations of what was, in fact, a historic turn not foreseen by Marx and Engels, it draws out implications for possible future developments in less-developed countries.
