Description
The father of Communist Russia, Vladimir Ilych Lenin seems in many histories to have emerged fully formed from the turbulent wake of World War I and the Russian Revolution. But Lenin's character was in fact forged much earlier, argues Helen Rappaport, over the course of years spent in exile, constantly on the move, and in disguise. Scuttling between the capital cities of Europe, as Rappaport relates in this "wonderfully thorough and highly interesting account" (Publishers Weekly), Lenin found support among fellow émigrés and revolutionaries in the underground movement, eventually leading a ring of conspirators—many of whom would give their lives in service to his schemes.

"The period of Lenin's life when he wandered Europe, impoverished and isolated, prior to the 1917 revolution is recounted in fascinating detail in this new book.... This volume contributes immensely to our understanding of how Lenin forged his cadre, his leadership style and the worldview that all came to be so brutally reflected in the oppressive state he founded."—Russian Life
