At the beginning of the first Nuclear Disarmament movement, Russell and Einstein published a famous declaration which became known as the Pugwash Manifesto. At that time, the world was divided into two powerful blocs, each of which gave the impression of internal unity and external intransigence. In this context, it was easy to see the world conflict as a holy war, a contest between rival ideologies. But the unity of the blocs has been breaking down, year by year. Today, both East and West are divided. Ken Coates analyzes the divisions in communism in a series of essays.
