ABSTRACT
The article evaluates the declaration of Western European communist countries that they would convert to democracy, liberalism and capitalism, which happened during the Communist Summit held in East Berlin, Germany as of October 1976. It looks at the evolution of socialists and communist parties in Western Europe. It argues that the leaders of countries in the East Berlin Summit--France, Italy and Spain--announced their conversion in order to gain more votes during elections so that they can stay in power. It also considers whether the Soviet Union staged the East Berlin summit in order to make Trojan horses out of its allies in Western Europe.
