Moscow, 1920 - site of the Second Congress of the Communist International - was the focus of hopes for liberation of millions around the world.
Through the ring of hostile armies assaulting the Soviet workers' and peasants' republic, delegates from thirty-seven countries made their way to Moscow to help build the new world movement.
For three weeks they met in congress, presenting many contending views. They adopted decisions on the liberation struggle of oppressed nations, the alliance of workers and farmers, the transformation of trade unions into weapons of struggle for a new, socialist society, and much more.
Long after the Communist Internationals' destruction by Joseph Stalin, its second congress remains an irreplacable chapter in the worldwide struggle for social liberation.
This complete two-volume edition of the Second Congress includes previously unpublished photographs and drawings. It forms part of the acclaimed series The Communist International in Lenin's Time.
