The origins of thè Communist Party of Spain (Juan Avilés Farré)

Documents of the Communist International, some of them only recently mode available, shed new light on the origins of the Communist Party of Spain, barn in 1921 from the fusion of two previous parties, the first of which had been founded in 1920. The reports of the Communist International delegates offer valuable insights about the early years of the PCE, on which we have very limited Spanish sources, mainly press files and the memories of very few militants. Drawing from all those sources, this essay addresses the question which historian Gerald Meaker asked twenty years ago: why did communism fail to take solid roots in a country where revolutionary workers had greeted the Russian Revolution with great admiration ?
