Noob asking for Book

I want to read into communism as I have a big knowledge gap regarding it. I'm not solely interested in Communist theory, but even more so in a comparison of actual Socialist/Communist societies past and present*. How these societies transformed to Socialism/Communism, how the standard of living changed, and how Socialism/Communism perished again. Did the people stood behind their possibly authoritarian government? It's very important that the author(s) analyze this from an unbiased point of view and analyze unbiased primary sources. Can you recommend a good book? *From my noob perspective, "Socialism with Chinese characteristics" is Socialism just in name.. In the state controlled sector of economy, do the workers actually own the means of production?

>I'm not solely interested in Communist theory, but even more so in a comparison of actual Socialist/Communist societies past and present*. How these societies transformed to Socialism/Communism, how the standard of living changed, and how Socialism/Communism perished again The idea is to establish a Dictatorship of the Proletariat that would raise living standards enough and also use government influence to resolve class contradictions to dissolve the state. Socialism/communism arose in poor countries where the ruling class completely aliennated everyone besides themselves in power. The people stood by communism in places where it rose organically like in Russia or China I think Parentti has books about it
