An excellent biography, which captures the real Lenin – part intel-lectual professor, part ruthless and dogmatic politician.’
Geoffrey Swain, University of the West of England 
‘A fascinating book about a gigantic historical figure. ChristopherRead is an accomplished scholar and superb writer who has pro-duced a first-rate study that is courageous, original in its insights,and deeply humane.’
Daniel Orlovsky, Southern Methodist University 
Vladimir Il’ich Ulyanov, known as Lenin was an enigmatic leader, aresolute and audacious politician who had an immense impact ontwentieth-century world history. Lenin’s life and career have beenat the centre of much ideological debate for many decades. Thepost-Soviet era has seen a revived interest and re-evaluation of theRussian Revolution and Lenin’s legacy.This new biography gives a fresh and original account of Lenin’spersonal life and political career. Christopher Read draws on a broadrange of primary and secondary sources, including material madeavailable in the
glasnost 
and post-Soviet eras. Focal points of thisstudy are Lenin’s revolutionary ascetic personality; how he exploitedculture, education and propaganda; his relationship to Marxism;his changing class analysis of Russia; and his ‘populist’ instincts.This biography is an excellent and reliable introduction to one of the key figures of the Russian Revolution and post-Tsarist Russia.
