Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Communist International and US Communism, 1919-1929 contains the table of contents, acknowledgements and a list of abbreviations. The book discusses political history of the first decade of the American Communist Party (CP). It examines how the early Communists, inspired by the first successful workers' revolution in history, sought to forge a party in the United States capable of making a revolution in that country. In particular, this work analyses the 'Americanisation' of Communism: how Communists understood and applied the lessons of the international Communist movement to American society.

Keywords: American Communist Party (CP); international Communist movement
