Procacci and the Soviet Union
In 1974, Procacci published his Il partito nell’Unione Sovietica, 1917-1945 – a book issuing from a long period of intellectual and political queries. It is a text rich in unspoken questions, particularly on the resounding success of one-party systems in European and world history, and the historical significance of Jacobinism. In fact, Procacci used this concept in very different ways, taking it alternately from Mathiez to Lenin, Gramsci to Giuseppe Berti. Today, although his text can hardly be considered a viable contribution to the history of the Soviet Union, it is still an interesting document in twentieth-century Italian intellectual history.
