en Limba Engleză Paperback – 07 Jun 2012
The extraordinary story of the collection of opportunists, journalists and spies who operated in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution, when the West were desperate to stop the spread of Bolshevism and Lenin and Trotsky were equally committed to the opposite. In the popular narrative history of "Agent Zigzag", this tells the tale of such operators as Arthur Ransome, and Americans John Reed and Sidney Reilly in Moscow, and Maxim Litvinov, Adolf Ioffe and Kamenev in Berlin, Paris and London.

He has written several books, including the highly acclaimed Lenin: A Biography, Russia: Experiment with a People , Stalin: A Biography and Comrades: A History of World Communism, as well as many other books on Russia's past and present.

"Library Journal""[A] well-researched, detailed, and thoughtful analysis of the Russian Revolution, here removed from the global vacuum into which it is often relegated.... Service is careful not to lose focus on the cultural, political, and economic weight that the revolution brought to a dispirited Russia.... [A] nuanced and important contribution to the history of the Russian Revolution. Readers of Russian and early Soviet history, both in and out of academia, will find it illuminating."
"Kirkus Reviews" "Careful, dense scholarly study" that "paints detailed portraits of the revolutionary principals and their sometimes-surprising allies and enemies."
