The Communist International existed for less than a quarter of a century and disappeared from the political arena in the summer of 1943. Communist parties were key players in national politics as their decisions had a profound impact on internal stability, foreign policy, and the struggle against fascism. This book analyzes the coded dispatches that were part of the huge cipher correspondence of the Executive Committee of the Communist International (ECCI) with national Communist parties around the world. In looking at these coded dispatches and other ciphered materials, this book illuminates some of the key episodes in Comintern history and the significance of the Comintern in shaping world history.

Keywords:   Communist International, communist parties, fascism, coded dispatches, cipher correspondence, ECCI, Comintern
