About the Author:

Robert A. Rosenstone is Professor of History, California Institute of Technology, and author of Mirror in the Shrine: American Encounters with Meiji Japan and Romantic Revolutionary: A Biography of John Reed (both from Harvard).

Review:

A magnificent, thoughtful, moving book. Written with poetic sweep, [it] recreates a vital era of American history and restores John Reed, the legend, to life. Romantic Revolutionary will long be read as the definitive work about a man who lived and epic life in quest of an ideal. (Dorothy Samachson Chicago Daily News)

We see Jack Reed not only as the daring adventurer, the successful, celebrated, attractive hero, but in his ordeals, in his less than lovable, less than admirable moments, in his stormy and sometimes pathetic relationships, in his ambition and drive for achievement, for sensation, in his moments of despair. (Robert Kirsch Los Angeles Times Book Review)

A superb biography, a model of how to trace the growth of a mind while staying true to the facts. (Roger Rosenblatt New Republic)

The most authoritative account of the life of the author of 'Ten Days That Shook the World'. (Boston Globe)
