Textul de pe ultima copertă

Beryl Williams' new book is a clear introduction to the life, ideology and impact of Lenin, one of the formative figures of the twentieth-century world.
It provides an excellent introduction to Lenin and his role in the Russian Revolution. An objective account of his years in power between 1917 and 1924, it is written in the light of new documents made available since the Gorbachev era and the end of the Soviet Union. Beryl Williams provides an up to date evaluation of:
Lenin's life and thoughts and the importance of ideology in both
the cultural revolution
Lenin's foreign policy and expansionism
Lenin's cult and the re-evaluation of his legacy that has taken place
during the last decade.
Beryl Williams' lucid study of Lenin's life and work adds to the recent debates that have seen a re-examination of the revolution and Lenin himself, since the collapse of communism.
and is author of The Russian Revolution 1917-21.
