The Rest Is History

38. Communism

The Rest Is History

It was one of the great political ideologies of the 20th century, vying with capitalism for supremacy.

Now communism has retreated from the political mainstream having failed to create the utopia of a classless society.

Dominic Sandbrook and Tom Holland discuss the origins of communism as a theory and the frequently repressive attempts to govern by its principles.
