Publisher Comments:

One of the great works of modern historical writing, the classic account of the ideas, people, and politics that led to the Bolshevik Revolution

Edmund Wilsons To the Finland Station is intellectual history on a grand scale, full of romance, idealism, intrigue, and conspiracy, that traces the revolutionary ideas that shaped the modern world from the French Revolution up through Lenins arrival at Finland Station in St. Petersburg in 1917. Fueled by Wilsons own passionate engagement with the ideas and politics at play, it is a lively and vivid, sweeping account of a singular idea—that it is possible to construct a society based on justice, equality, and freedom—gaining the power to change history.

Vico, Michelet, Bakunin, and especially Marx—along with scores of other anarchists, socialists, nihilists, utopians, and more—all come to life in these pages. And in Wilsons telling, their stories and their ideas remain as alive, as provocative, as relevant now as they were in their own time.

About the Author
