Adaptation and Innovation

The crisis of communism at around 1960 was a watershed in the history of the left. Within the world communist movement, the Sino-Soviet split and attempts to form a specific Western European communist identity undermined the previous monolithic image of communism. At the same time, decolonisation and the rise of the non-aligned movement provided new perspectives that replaced the bipolarity of the cold war. In Western Europe and the USA, New Left groups began to emerge in the wake of the invasion of Hungary and the twentieth congress of the CPSU or in connection with the civil rights and peace movements. For the most part, these groups came out of the communist movement, either as splinter parties, like the Danish SF, or as internal reform attempts, like the Swedish communists, or they came out of intellectual milieux connected with the communist movement as more or less devoted 'fellow-travellers.'
