Im interested in reading a bit about the history of communism. I have read very little on the topic, so even reccomendations at primer/general readership level would be appreciated.
I am interested in books outlining the implementation of communism and socialism, the evolution of the ideology of communism, and biographies of prominant figures (Marx, Engels, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Mao, etc.).
The problem I have come up against searching on my own is sifting out the bias, which, since I have read so few books on the subject, is a priority for me. Please reccomend books that tend more toward the factual, as opposed to analytical, and have struck you as be even-handed.
