Abstract

This article analyses the social and political profile of PSUC militants during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), in the context of the international communist movement. It analyses the similarities and differences in the social and, above all, ideological composition between the PSUC and the main communist parties of Western Europe (PCF, PCI and PCE). Moreover, the article also explores the exceptional nature PSUC's militancy. For this purpose I have used unedited sources from the former USSR Marxism-Leninism Institute, now called Russian Centre for the Conservation and Study of the Documentation of Modern History, and also the Historical Archives of the PCE, the contemporary press, and memoirs by party members.
