Russian Revolution, Comintern and Latin America

The Revolution 1917 not only managed to change Russia itself, but also to influence significantly over whole the world. The formation of the USSR and the Comintern were the bifurcation points which defined the history of the humanity in the 20th century. The main challenge for the authors of this issue was to study the influence of the Russian Revolution on the formation and development of the Left-Wing and Communist movement in the Latin American continent between two World Wars, i. e. during the existence of the Communist International. The authors of the articles presented in this issue — historians from a number of leading universities and research institutes in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Chile — participated in the Latin American section of “The Revolution of 1917 and its Place in the History of the 20th Century” international conference held in September 2017.
