Review:

A genuinely major contribution to political understanding. -- New York Times

By any standards, a majestic work. Nothing like this survey exists in any language....Stylishly written, with an ironic wit and vivid gift for metaphor....An unfailing pleasure to read. -- The Economist

Sassoon, a teacher of history at the University of London, hops from country to country around Western Europe, following socialism's several national strands ... The breadth of his knowledge leads him to be a little contradictory in assigning responsibility for the social progress. In some passages he credits the Socialists, but in others he acknowledges that non-Socialists of various stripes have sometimes taken the lead... -- The New York Times Book Review, Paul Berman

This panoramic, sweeping history of a century of European political events examines the presence of the left in Europe from 1898 to the present, examining changes affecting socialist and social democratic parties and contrasting socialist systems with capitalism in the U. S. and in other countries. This should be considered essential in-depth reading for any studying socialism, providing the definitive analysis of socialist history and thought in this century. -- Midwest Book Review
