Who is C.-H. Hermansson?

Carl-Henrik Hermansson is a former Swedish politician. He was born in Bollnäs. He was chairman of the Communist Party of Sweden 1964–1975 and member of parliament 1963–1985. He was a major force in redirecting the Left Party Communists policies away from Moscow loyalism towards Eurocommunism and Scandinavian Popular Socialism.

He has written numerous amount of books regarding capitalism and the owners of the large corporations, and on the other hand on communists and the policies of the left.

At the time of Joseph Stalin's death in 1953, Hermansson heaped praise on Stalin's greatness in a few speeches, something he is regularly reminded of by journalists and political opponents, even though he has repeatedly made public his regret for the things said.

Due to the wealth of his wife and the taxation rules, he was the richest Sweden party leader of his time.
