KIRKUS REVIEW

A tremendous, historical and personal record of the changes, Russian instigated, within the Social Democratic Party in Germany, from the end of World War I through the transitional years of the manipulation of the German Social Democrats and the Stalinization. As a representative of a democratic workers' organization, the author opposed the Russian alliance in 1926, was virtually a state prisoner, and was expe when she protested the growing subservience to Moscow. She was an eye witness to many of the crises arising in the Lemin-Trotsky period, the emergent days of Stalin, the growing terrorism of the State Party regime, and her report is replete with tabulation of political changes, leaders' capitulation to Soviet indoctrination, the day-to-day shift of loyalties, beliefs, policies. A massive t, of interest basically to those close students of world politics, of the pattern of power trends.
