This book, the second volume of a trilogy on International communism, attempts to explore and document the development of Soviet mastery of the Comintern and Stalin's role in the process, from two vantage points: bolshevisation as effected in some representative parties by the ambiguous and wavering Comintern strategy and tactics from the Fifth World Congress to the turnabout of the "Third Period"; and the national and colonial policy in theory and practice, particularly in China, as a vivid illustration of the incompatibility of Soviet Russian and international communist interests. In both of these, "socialism in one country" appears to have served as the point of departure, the means and the end.
