PART III ⸺ Revolution and Counter-Revolution ⸺ TWENTY YEARS AFTER

In 1976 the author was asked to write a preface to a new Italian edition of Revolution and Counter-Revolution.

He therefore added this third part, which was first published in 1977. In 1992, in the aftermath of the fall of the Iron Curtain, the author updated this analysis with some commentaries published herein. – Ed.
