In From the Gulag to the Killing Fields, editor Paul Hollander assembled 40 personal stories of Communist political violence.
Mr. Hollander explains that while communism was developed to create a new sense of community, a more accurate description of the political ideology would be "violence with a higher purpose." This event was hosted by the Heritage Foundation in Washington, DC. Paul Hollander is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He is the author of Anti-Americanism, Political Will and Personal Belief and Discontents: Postmodern and Post-communist.
