A recent article in The Nation provided a review of Faculty Fellow James McAdams' (political science) new book Vanguard of the Revolution: The Global Idea of the Communist Party.  It praised the book as "a very readable synthesis of the history of the communist party, from Marx and Engels’s manifesto to the collapse of the USSR," and stated that "McAdams handles both the global sweep and the local details of each case he covers with an impressive assurance and levelheadedness, all while keeping his distance from the tired Cold War polemics that usually surround this subject."
