Rajani Palme Dutt
A Study in British Stalinism
Rajani Palme Dutt (1896-1974) was a leading figure in the Communist Party of Great Britain from the 1920s to the 1960s. His strong links with the Comintern made him, throughout this period, a devoted - and stern - supporter of orthodoxy within the CPGB.
Through an intertwining of personal and political history, this well-documented book not only tells the fascinating story of Palme Dutt’s life, but also provides a key to understanding the rise and fall of communism in the 20th century.
‘…a remarkable political biography.’

‘Excellent, scholarly and thoughtful.’
