Twentieth Century Communism is a journal on international history that specialises on examining the events surrounding communism of the past century. It provides an international forum for the latest research on the subject and an entry-point into key developments and debates not immediately accessible to English-language historians.
Its main focus is on the period of the Russian revolution (1917-91) and on the activities of communist parties. However, its remit also extends to the movement's antecedents and rivals, the responses to communism of political competitors and state systems, and to the cultural as well as political influence of communism.

This journal that examines the reality of Communism over the twentieth century is an indispensable resource for students of Communist history who do not want to get bogged down in crass generalisations and examine the meat of the reality of political history. Of particular focus is the evolution of Communism within its cradle of Russia and how it was buffeted by the USSR’s various reforms. But the international relations between Communist parties of other nations and how their interactions shaped the struggle for revolution worldwide is also given significant attention.
Each issue will examine a particular aspect of Communist history, such as what place political violence had within Communist movements and how youth organisations factored into pre and post-revolutionary action. Near the rear of each issue is a review section dedicated to covering other prominent pieces of literature on Communist research that the interested reader may wish to discover. Peer-reviewed and inclusive, Twentieth Century Communism is a journal key to understand the subtle elements and bold shifts in history across the world.
