El libro negro del comunismo: crimenes, terror y represion (1997) es un controvertido libro escrito por profesores universitarios y experimentados investigadores europeos y editado por Stephane Courtois, director de investigaciones del Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), la mayor y mas prestigiosa organizacion publica de investigacion de Francia.

From the Publisher:

The atrocities, country by country, of communist regimes.

From the Back Cover:

Courtois, director of research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), leads the efforts of major scholars associated with the CNRS, who drew on recently opened Soviet archives to track the atrocities of communism worldwide over the last century. Concluding that communism's death toll stands at 85 to 100 million, they wonder forcefully why such "class genocide" is excused more easily than the Nazis' "race genocide." This book burned a hole in the French Left when it was published--and also hit the best sellers lists. Not easy reading, but a seminal document.
