It looks at the meaning and usefulness of deployments of force that were made by the French Communist Party (PCF), analysing them in relation to the external requirements of the party's connections with other political formations, and to the internal requirements of the militants' link with the party, and the party's link with the militants.

- Twentieth Century Communism 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 themselves but 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.
