Italian Communism: The Escape from Leninism : an Anthropological Perspective

Front Cover
Pluto Press, 1990 - 246 pages
Crispen Shore's work is based on research in the heart of the Communist-governed city of Perugia. He traces major factors which explain the success of the PCI - its disengagement from the Soviet Union, its break with the strictures of Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy, its development of an independent popular national vision of socialism and the expansive sub-cultural role it has created for itself within Italian society.
