Summary

"Primarily concerned with the historical roots and contemporary condition of socialism, Historical Dictionary of Socialism offers information on writers, activists, ideas, political parties, institutions, and movements that sought - and in many cases, are still seeking - to change social and political order. This second edition reflects the diversity in the broad movement of the left and exposes such variants as reformist social democracy, revolutionary Marxism, the New Left, and contemporary anticapitalism."

"Taking up where the first edition left off, this thoroughly revised dictionary shows how socialism has been reacting, reforming, and expanding. This is achieved through a chronology, list of acronyms and abbreviations, introductory essay, bibliography, and cross-referenced dictionary section with 114 new entries - some on the current leadership, others on the many new parties of Central and Eastern Europe and the Third World, and yet others on reaction to globalization. Historical Dictionary of Socialism provides a mine of information for teachers and students of political ideologies, comparative politics, political sociology, labor history, and political theory."--BOOK JACKET.
