"The Russian Communists had shown by 1920 that they possessed the strength to defeat their enemies within Russia. It was likewise clear that the Russians were not strong enough to reconquer the peoples of the Western borderlands who had declared their independence. Events had shown that the revolution was not spreading of its own accord into the Western countries. In this book are detailed the making and execution of the new strategy employed by the Communists to promote its spread in the West.

"This and the companion volume, Soviet Russia and the East, 1920-1927, tell the story of eight years during which the Russian communist leaders experimented with carrying on ostensibly normal diplomatic, economic, and cultural relations with the noncommunist powers, while at the same time promoting difficulties between and within the same powers through the Communist International." - publisher.

This volume contains 143 documents with historical introductions and discussion of their importance in understanding Communist practice.
