ABSTRACT
The article comments on the integration of the Communist parties within the West European political structure in 1976. A softening-up campaign is being conducted as a preparation for such integration, and the democratic credo proclaimed by Georges Marchais and Enrico Berlinguer, chiefs of the French and Italian Communist parties, in November 1975 was a key maneuver in the said campaign. The document released by Marchais and Berlinguer raised the historical problem of the nature of Communism, as well as the derivative practical problem of non-Communist tactics in relation to Communism.
