    Brilliant analysis of the communist danger and how the West was seduced by it At the time it stood out as very reactionary but it turned out to be very lucid afterwards A bit provocative

    This is the first book I read by Revel and it made me a raving fan of all his works In this book he takes up the issue of the Lefts Totalitarian Temptation and uncovers the issues and contradictions inherent in supporting strongmen and tyrants who share the same ideological views It made the French intellectual left wince when it first came out and garnered no awards for Revel It is hard hitting fast paced and in depth though dated for the early to mid 1970's it is as relevant today as when it was first written Revel is a standing tower of intellectual virtue and integrity on the left willing to say it like it is even when it impugns the left's own ideas sadly something you truly rarely see in neo left wing circles My only wish is that his heirs will bring this book back into print in The world needs it now 2017 then ever
