After 1989, those who felt the urge to insulate themselves from the hangover of ‘official Marxism’ – the official, Stalinist Soviet ideology of the post-Lenin years – were grateful to the CPSU leadership for opening up the Comintern archives, itself a decision that came out of the glasnost of the Gorbachev period. A milestone in post-1987 research on the Comintern era was a 1992 conference, attended by Datta Gupta, called ‘The Communist International and its National Sections’, held in the Netherlands. For the longtime Comintern researcher, the conference was a watershed. It was here that Datta Gupta first began to fathom what it would be to explore the wealth of the Comintern repository, an opportunity afforded him three years later with an offer from the Asiatic Society in Calcutta.
