Conspirator: Lenin in Exile

Conspirator: Lenin in Exile Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The father of Communist Russia, Vladimir Ilych Lenin now seems to have emerged fully formed in the turbulent wake ofWorldWar I and the Russian Revolution. But Lenins character was in fact forged much earlier, over the course of years spent in exile, constantly on the move, and in disguise.

In Conspirator, Russian historian Helen Rappaport narrates the compelling story of Lenins life and political activities in the years leading up to the revolution. As he scuttled between the glittering capital cities of Europe—from London and Munich to Vienna and Prague—Lenin found support among fellow émigrés and revolutionaries in the underground movement. He came to lead a ring of conspirators, many of whom would give their lives in service to his schemes.

A riveting account of Lenins little-known early life, Conspirator tracks in gripping detail the formation of one of the great revolutionaries of the twentieth century.

Synopsis:

A vivid account of Lenins years of exile in Europe, where he relentlessly plotted the toppling of Czarist Russia

Synopsis:

“An excellent account of Lenins formative years as a political exile from tsarist Russia that evokes the desperate scene of the European radical underground with nuance and in engaging detail.”—Seattle Times

Synopsis:

Helen Rappaports Conspirator is a vivid account of Vladimir I. Lenins years of exile in Europe, showing that this often-overlooked period shaped the life of one of the 20th centurys most important figures. In the years leading up to the Russian Revolution, Lenin traveled between the capital cities of Europe, developing a complex network of collaborators and co-conspirators that would play a significant role in the struggle to come. Rappaport sheds a rare light onto Lenins early life, describing his relationship with his wife, Nadezhda Krupskaya, and his extraordinary and unexpected love affair with beautiful activist Inessa Armand. In a riveting narrative, Conspirator describes the courage and the comedy, the setbacks, schisms and disappointments, the extreme persistence and the ruthless dedication that carried Lenin and his colleagues along the inexorable path to the Russian Revolution.
