This book is probably the only one of its kind - a history of the Comintern out of a genuine revolutionary perspective. In a relatively short account of the political events of the 1920s and 30s, Duncan Hallas traces the ups and motsly downs of the organisation, which was supposed to help Communism take over the world.

Very good and clear Trotskyist view on the history of Comintern, but it might be worth to combine with Peter Hopkirk's Setting the East Ablaze and David McKNight's Espionage and the Roots of the Cold War (the history of Comintern's intelligence) to get the broader picture
