9780745305547: Italian Communism: The Escape From Leninism

Crispen Shore's work is based on research in the heart of the Communist-governed city of Perugia. He traces major factors which explain the success of the PCI - its disengagement from the Soviet Union, its break with the strictures of Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy, its development of an independent popular national vision of socialism and the expansive sub-cultural role it has created for itself within Italian society. The book focuses specifically on the PCI's current dilemma, offering both a view of the world and of history from an Italian communist perspective, and an anthropological analysis of that worldview.
