Item #2667 Revolution and Counter-Revolution in Hungary: Stalinism Unmasked. G. Healy, Gerry.

Revolution and Counter-Revolution in Hungary: Stalinism Unmasked

[London?]: [Revolutionary Communist Party], [1966]. First Edition Thus.

A scarce pamphlet published on the 10th anniversary of the Hungarian revolution. It includes material published in a 1956-57 edition plus additional material. The author, Gerry Healy, strongly denounces the Soviet invasion of Hungary and takes Western leftists to task for not supporting the workers' uprising.

This edition was published as a "Newsletter Pamphlet" and includes considerable material on the uprising, an article on workers' councils (reprinted from the Newsletter of Nov. 12, 1966), and a useful chronology of events in Hungary and Eastern Europe. The Newsletter was a publication of Britain's Revolutionary Communist Party.

Copies of the original publication are available in the antiquarian book trade, but this edition -- with additional material -- is much more scarce.
