Tony Wood, University of Colorado Boulder, “Semi­-Colonials and Soviets: Latin American Communists in the USSR, 1927-1936”

This chapter discusses how Latin American Communists reshaped Soviet understandings of their region—and vice versa. It explores the experiences in Moscow of delegates and students from Latin American Communist parties at the turn of the 1930s, tracing their contributions to Comintern debates and the impact of the USSR on their later political trajectories.
