Council communism emerged theoretically and politically in Germany and Holland in the 1920's as a distinct alternative to the Leninist theory of revolution and its political practice, both in Russia and internationally, through the Third International. It calls for a decentralised form of communism featuring worker self-management of enterprises and overall coordination of production by workers' councils.
