KIRKUS REVIEW

Into the plethora of recent publishing about the Russian Revolution and its personalities, comes this brief, direct account of Lenin and the events of the 1917 Revolution. Neither full-scale biography nor analytical history, it manages to encompass a great deal of information in simple outline form. The treatment is generally sympathetic as regards Lenin and the Revolution, and more critical as regards its aftermath. The resemblance to a text is reinforced by the rather stolid, dry appearance of the book. For heavy use, prebound purchase would be advisable.
