    How much support did eastern European communist parties have post WW2 1945-1950?

    Has anyone ever tried to work out how much actual support they had (e.g if there was a free election how many votes they would win). Btw I know that some of the prewar elections where relatively free.

    Were any Communist parties outside of Europe supporters of ethnic federalization?

    In the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia (and, to some extent, in Yugoslavia as well), Communists federalized their countries along ethnic lines. In turn, this helped facilitate the break-up of these countries once Communist rule there collapsed--with the Soviet Union becoming fifteen separate...

    Communist insurgency in Asia

    I always find it weird to see that so many communist insurgencies still aren't over in Asia. Naxalites in India, maoist in Philippines still have a lot of popular support. Even a country like Japan that almost seem apolitical today experienced the attacks of those far left groups. What can...

    Tian-an-men, the emblem of Communist China

    As we all know, the Tian-an-men (天安門, Gate of Heavenly Peace) is on the emblem of the People's Republic of China. This seems like a great contradiction to me, since the Tian-an-men is the front gate of the imperial palace, the very symbol of reaction and authority, that any...

    Why did not Communist China annex Mainland Southeast Asia?

    China is undoubtedly currently one of the most powerful countries in the world - in terms of territory, population as well as already economy. Yet it seems that it could have easily been even more powerful than it is right now. That additional power could have come from either annexation or...

    Communist USA, Capitalist Russia

    Communism never rise in Russia and the Entente remains in tact to finish off Germany. However, the Russian people has had enough hardship and the Tsar had no choice but to relinquish absolute power to pave way for a constitutional monarchy and a capitalist economy. The United States of America...

    Alger Hiss, Communist Spy or Innocent Victim of Red Scare?

    India has been under something similar to the Chinese Communist Party

    With all its defects and vices, the accomplishments of the Chinese Communist Party are still astonishing. To say that Mao Zedong was evil without accomplishments might not be historical correct; his destructive formatting might have paved the road for rapid modernization. It raised literacy rate...
