ABSTRACT
This article looks at a trend toward socialist ideals in Europe. Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was defeated in a close and highly contested election by left-wing candidate Romano Prodi. Berlusconi warned that Prodi was just a mild-mannered front-man for wild-eyed communists in the mold of Marx and Lenin and Stalin. For several years now, the appeal of the far left to voters in France and Italy has grown.
