- In Western Europe, the long postwar boom and the lack of progress made by the Communist parties there led in the 1970s to the emergence of a trend known as Eurocommunism.
- Leaders of the latter attacked Eurocommunism, and it was stalwartly defended by the Spanish leader and others.
- In Latin Europe, the communist parties weakened as the era of Eurocommunism waned.
- Yet Eurocommunism made the same decision in Western Europe after the war: to cooperate with Christian Democracy and to struggle for the revolution peacefully, by changing public perceptions.
- At the time it also developed a party line that came to resemble Eurocommunism, ostensibly independent of both the USSR and China.
