"A competent and fair-minded study of a controversial subject.  It presents much factual material and judicious interpretation in lucid prose."—L.S. Stavrianos, The Los Angeles Book Review

"This is a useful book not only for its own content but also for the careful, illuminating, and discriminating comments that Lindeman provides in his guides to further reading at the end of each chapter."—Madeline R. Robrinton, The Key Reporter

"For pedagogical purposes there is no better book available."—H. Malcolm, Social Science Quarterly

"A well-researched, objective, and dispassioned account of a subject that will probably never cease to excite and inflame."—Marie Marmo Mullaney, The Historian

"This is a judicious, concise, and readable rendering of the history of European socialism. . . . Lindemann strives to be balanced, almost always summarizing opposing points of view on major events and issues.  He frequently introduces the findings of the most recent historical research, a feature that sharpens the interpretive focus.  He is skilled at both concise and extended comparisons, an approach he employs as an effective explanatory technique.  Finally, each chapter is accopmained by an annotated bibliography that should prove to be extremely valuable for general readers."—Vernon Lidtke, Journal of Modern History

"Lindemann had given us a lucid and illuminating international history of socialism.  It is the best book on teh subject to put in the hands of our students."—Helmut Gruber, International Labor and Working Class History

"Balanced and intelligent. . . refreshingly opinionated and often perceptive. . . compelling. . . Could significantly help overcome the continuing massive ignorance in America about the history of socialism."—James H. Billington, Washington Post
