    Could anyone help me with what right wing traditional communists are?

    Im doing about the 1991 coup for my coursework and I need to look at the ideology behind the old elites who planned it.

    Was Gorbachev a left wing communist?

    Please help!

    Thanks

    Trying not to be negative, but in the three days since you last posted essentially this same question (http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...051&highlight=) haven't you found the answer somewhere in a book or online?

    To the thread title: Nationalist Socialists? Godwins law works quickly these days :giggle:

    Gorbachev was more of an appeasement left winger, his policy of Perestroika more snowballed than was created out of policy. You might be confusing right wing with conservatism, which are two different things. Conservatist traditional communists wanted to prevent reforms, and Gorbachev wanted to rejuvenate the system with reforms despite doing it in a very right wing way.
