Trotsky : downfall of a revolutionary by Bertrand M Patenaude( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historian Patenaude, a lecturer at Stanford, concentrates on the period from 1937, when Trotsky arrived in Mexico, to his assassination in 1940, painting a vivid portrait of Lenin's former right-hand man: his stormy relations with his flamboyant Mexican champion (and later enemy), artist Diego Rivera; his dealings with his American supporters; and the relentless efforts of Stalin's GPU to kill him
The big show in Bololand : the American relief expedition to Soviet Russia in the famine of 1921 by Bertrand M Patenaude( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War, revolution, and peace in Russia : the passages of Frank Golder, 1914-1927 by Frank Alfred Golder( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American historian Frank Golder's writings from Russia describe the momentous events he witnessed and record his encounters with a remarkable variety of individuals. From 1914 to 1927 he maintained relationships with the vanquished classes of the old regime and initiated new ones within the Bolshevik and Soviet establishment. A faithful diarist and prolific correspondent, Golder was unmatched among American observers of Russia for the range and depth of contacts in Moscow and Petrograd. During Golder's first trip to Russia in 1914, his writings revealed the internal stratification and cracks in the structure of imperial Russian society as it entered the world war. He returned to Russia in 1917, arriving in Petrograd, eleven days before the fall of Nicholas II. His diary records the drama of the initial months of the Russian Revolution and introduces us to some of the major players on the political scene, including principal figures in the Provisional Government such as Alexander Kerensky and Paul Miliukov. On his third visit to Russia, as a famine relief worker for the American Relief Administration (ARA) in 1921, Golder documented the fate of old regime intelligentsia. During the second year of this two-year stay, Golder took on a new assignment as unofficial political observer for U.S. secretary of commerce Herbert Hoover. His weekly letters to Hoover's office reveal the backdoor negotiations between Washington and Moscow on issues of trade and political recognition, and their publication here fills a gap in U.S.-Soviet diplomatic history. On his later trips to Russia in 1925 and 1927, Golder recorded his observations of the changes in Soviet society after the death of Lenin. Excerpts from his diary in Europe after his departure from the Soviet Union in 1925 describe his encounters with prominent Russian emigres. Taken together, Golder's diaries and letters offer a sustained narrative of the agony of Russia and of individual Russians in war, revolution, civil war, famine, and their aftermath

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stalin's nemesis : the exile and murder of Leon Trotsky by Bertrand M Patenaude( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leon Trotsky was the charismatic intellectual of the Russian Revolution, a brilliant writer and orator who was also an authoritarian organizer. He might have succeeded Lenin and become the ruler of the Soviet Union. But by the time the Second World War broke out he was in exile, living in Mexico in a villa borrowed from the great artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, guarded only by several naive young Americans in awe of the great theoretician. The household was awash with emotional turmoil - tensions grew between Trotsky and Rivera, as questions arose over his relations with Frida Kahlo. His wife was restless and jealous. Outside of the villa, Mexican communists tried to storm the house and kill the man they regarded as a traitor, the Trotskys' sons were being persecuted and killed in Europe, and in Moscow, Stalin personally ordered his secret police to kill his fiercest left-wing critic - at any cost. By the summer of 1940, they had found a man who could penetrate the tight security around the house in far-away Mexico. This title offers a brilliant reconstruction of one of the most infamous state crimes, and a panoramic view of Trotsky's incredible life. ." from Book jacket (abridged)
