This chapter explores how Stalin now looked to cultivate alliances with imperialist powers like Britain and France against the threat of Nazi Germany. It looks at the decision of the Soviet Union to join the League of Nations, and the decision of the Communist International to develop the theory of the “Popular Front.” It examines the explosion of working-class militancy in France in 1936 and how the French Communist Party acted to limit this movement and its militancy. James ends by defending the need for a new Fourth International to replace the bankrupt Third International now that it is no longer a revolutionary organization.
