About this Item

Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw, now mylar-sleeved. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 529 pages; Physical desc. : xxxix, 529p. , [32]p. Of plates : ill. , 1 facsim. , 1 map, ports. ; 24cm. Subjects: Lenin, Vladimir Il'ich, 1870-1924 - Biography. Communism - Soviet Union - Biography. Soviet Union - Politics and government - 1917-1936. Summary: This is the most interesting book to come out of Russia since glasnost began. It demolishes the principal myth on which the Soviet state had been founded, from within that state's most secret archive - Lenin's own. He turns out hardly to have been Russian: his immediate ancestry included a Jew, a German, a Swede and a Kalmyck. The political passages are equally surprising: Lenin had virtually no practical experience, made a considerable mess of trying to run Russia after he and Trotsky seized power in November 1917, and had to fall back on terror as the only hope of remaining in power - a legacy he bequeathed to Stalin. Ghastly passages on the murder of the Romanov family and on Lenin's protracted final illness complete the demolition. (Kirkus UK). 2 Kg. Bookseller Inventory # 179979
