This is the first Western biography of L.B. Krasin, a leader of the Bolshevik wing of the Russian Social Democratic Workers Party, commissar of foreign trade in the Soviet government in the 1920s, and one of the foremost Soviet diplomats of his era. This meticulously documented book is based on extensive research in Soviet and Western archives and libraries as well as on Krasin's personal unpublished letters. It reviews Krasin's revolutionary conduct, including his technical organization of V.I. Lenin's "expropriations"--Robberies of Tsarist banks and post offices by secret Bolshevik "fighting squads." Krasin's revolutionary activities were quite remarkable, considering his prominent position in Russian society. By the 1905 Revolution he had become one of the leading engineers in the country and had acquired an international reputation for his expertise in chemical and electrical engineering. This biography examines Krasin's significant role in consolidating the Soviet government through the recruitment of technical specialists, his pursuit of Western credits and loans for economic reconstruction and modernization, and his work to establish diplomatic relations between the new government and Western European governments during the first part of the 1920s. The book devotes considerable attention to the reasons for his staunch defense of the Soviet monopoly of foreign trade. There is also careful treatment of Krasin's ideology of a technological utopia--a socialist technocracy--in Soviet Russia
