By Moshe Lewin
One of many nice political strategists of his period, V. I. Lenin keeps to draw ancient curiosity, but his advanced character eludes complete figuring out. This new version of Moshe Lewin's vintage political biography, together with an afterword by way of the writer, indicates new ways for learning the Marxist visionary and founding father of the Soviet country. Lenin's final fight bargains worthwhile insights into the increase of the Bolshevik get together and the Soviet Union, a saga advanced by means of complicated strategic battles one of the leaders of Lenin's new release: leaders whose names are universally recognized, yet whose personalities and motivations are even no longer sufficiently understood.Moshe Lewin used to be a collective farm employee within the USSR and a soldier within the Soviet military. He later turned director of experiences on the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes in Paris, a fellow of the Kennan Institute, a senior fellow of Columbia University's Russian Institute, and is now emeritus professor of historical past on the college of Pennsylvania.
