This dramatic book tells of the ensuing struggle within the PCI, which at the time was Italys second-largest party and the most powerful Communist party in the West. David I. Kertzers vivid depiction of the conflict brings to life the tactics that party factions employed and the anguish of party members for whom Communism was the core of their identity.

Kertzer also tells a larger story from an anthropologists perspective: the story of the importance of symbols, myths, and rituals in modern politics.
