Description

Fascism, Islamism, and Communism each speak of transcendent truth, salvation, and a common enemy. Though radical ideologies seem different, they follow similar patterns and make use of familiar methods in practice. In present-day Yemen, a new secessionist movement, Al-Hirak, is resurrecting symbols of former South Yemen, the only Marxist state in Arabia. Based on a range of unpublished documents, this book demonstrates why and how this ideology has taken root in Yemen and, for the first time, explains East Germany's vital role in implementing Moscow's socialist state- and nation-building policies in the global South.
