Between 1918 and 1968, the forces of revolution and counter-revolution fought a ceaseless battle over Europe’s history. This new issue of the Notebooks for Study and Research, "Revolution and Counterrevolution in Europe" shows how the Moscow-led communist parties led the revolutionary movements to disaster In Germany, Spain, France and elsewhere.
In the decades after the Second World War, democracy was regularly threatened by right-wing movements which aimed to dramatically constrict democratic rights. This ‘Bonapartism’ continually threatened democracy in France until the 1968 worker- and student-revolt destroyed the foundations of Gaullism. In this book a participant and political leader within the revolutionary movement gives his perspectives on those struggles.
This summer marks IIRE’s thirtieth anniversary. In commemoration of the occasion, the latest issue of IIRE Notebooks for Study and Research is dedicated to covering the origins, activities and highlights of the Institute’s three decades of existence.
'Living our Internationalism' is a history of the Institute edited by co-founder Joost Kircz and former director Murray Smith. The book will be launched at a dinner for IIRE staff and volunteers at the IIRE on March 25, and is already available online.
