Many features of communism during the 1920’s in the Soviet Union have since been buried so deeply in the dustbins of history that their rediscovery becomes a major resalvaging work … Most confused are the questions of sexuality, the family and the emancipation of women … The writings of Alexandra Kollontai are essential to any attempt to trace the course and clear away some of the ambiguities in this process.
