Rajani Palme Dutt A Study in British Stalinism


Rajani Palme Dutt A Study in British Stalinism by John Callaghan

Rajani Palme Dutt (1896-1974) was a leading figure in the Communist Party of Great Britain from the 1920s to the 1960s. His strong links with the Comintern made him, throughout this period, a devoted - and stern - supporter of orthodoxy within the CPGB. Through an intertwining of personal and political history, this well-documented book not only tells the fascinating story of Palme Dutt's life, but also provides a key to understanding the rise and fall of communism in the 20th century. '...a remarkable political biography.' John Torode, The Independent 'Excellent, scholarly and thoughtful.' Ben Pimlott, Independent on Sunday John Callaghan is Professor of Politics at the University of Wolverhampton. He is author of The Far Left in British Politics (1987) and Socialism in Britain since 1884 (1990).
