BeschreibungFormer British political leader Christopher Mayhew gives a fascinating account of the attraction of communism during his early years at Oxford. But after a visit to the Soviet Union, he became strongly anti-communist. The book's major importance begins in the early Cold War years and shows how Britain was the first to rebut Soviet propaganda and promote Western social democracy.
