June 16, 1996, Palo Alto, California). "Nine distinguished authorities on communism here consider aspects of the three Internationals which,in the name of revolutionary Marxism, fought many of the most important so cial and political battles of the past century. The papers derive from the conference "One Hundred Years of Revolutionary Internationals," held at theHoover Institution on War, Revolution, and Peace in October 1964. Jacques Freymond and Miklos Molnar contribute a descriptive essay on the First International (1864-74), and Boris I. Nicolaevsky discusses the relations between the International and the secret societies of that epoch. Max Nomad fills out the picture with a paper on anarchism, at that time the main revolutionary competition of the Marxist movement. The Second International (1889-1914) is analyzed from a conservative point of view by Gerhart Niemeyer, andfrom a Social Democratic point of view by Carl Landauer. Milorad M. Drachk ovitch and Branko Lazitch trace the history of the Third International (1919- 43), or Comintern, through its Leninist, interregnum, and Stalinist phases. Stefan T. Possony considers the transformation of the Comintern under Stalin into an instrument of the Soviet state." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction (by Milorad M. Drachkovitch). Part I.
