Josip Broz Tito was a remarkable figure in the history of Communism, the Second World War, the Balkans and post-war Eastern Europe. He was the only European besides Lenin to lead a successful Communist revolution and became one of the most renowned Communist leaders of all time. For a certain generation, he was remembered as someone who stood up to both Hitler and Stalin -- and won. Tito was above all else a communist, and was devoted to the communist cause until the day he died. What made him different from other communist leaders was that his early experience of Soviet Russia had given him sufficient knowledge of the Soviet experiment to be wary of its spell. In this, the first post-communist biography of Tito, the acclaimed historian Geoffrey Swain paints a new picture of this famous figure, focusing primarily on his Communist years. It will be essential reading for anyone interested in Communist and Eastern European history.

About the Author:

Geoffrey Swain is Alec Nove Professor of Russian and East European Studies at the University of Glasgow. He is the author of several books, including Eastern Europe Since 1945 (with Nigel Swain), Trotsky and The Origins of the Russian Civil War for which he was awarded the Alec Nove prize.

Review:

'This is a fair account of Tito's political life which works well as a history of Yugoslavia since its foundation from the Second World War to the death of Tito ... the book has the great merit of being judicious and balanced.' - Donald Sassoon, Professor of Comparative European History at Queen Mary College, University of London
