How it all began by Nikolaĭ Bukharin( Book )
6 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While in prison, Bukharin wrote four books, of which this unfinished novel was the last. It traces the development of Nikolai "Kolya" Petrov (closely modeled on Nikolai "Kolya" Bukharin) from his early childhood to age fifteen. In lyrical and poetic terms, it paints a picture of Nikolai's growing political consciousness and ends with his activism on the eve of the failed 1905 revolution. The novel is presented here along with the only surviving letter from Bukharin to his wife during his time in prison, an epistle filled with fear, longing, and hope for his family and his nation

Conversations with Gorbachev : on perestroika, the Prague Spring, and the crossroads of socialism by Mikhail Sergeevich Gorbachev( )
2 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mikhail Gorbachev and Zdenek Mlynar were friends for half a century, since they first crossed paths as students in 1950. Although one was a Russian and the other a Czech, they were both ardent supporters of communism and socialism. One took part in laying the groundwork for and carrying out the Prague spring; the other opened a new political era in Soviet world politics. In 1993 they decided that their conversations might be of interest to others and so they began to tape-record them. This book is the product of that?thinking out loud" process. It is an absorbing record of two fri

The letters of Rosa Luxemburg by Rosa Luxemburg( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the most comprehensive collection of letters by Rosa Luxemburg ever published in English, including 190 letters written to leading figures in the European and international labor and socialist movements -- Leo Jogiches, Karl Kautsky, Clara Zetkin and Karl Liebknecht -- who were her closest friends, lovers and colleagues. Many of these letters appear for the first time in English translation; all help to illuminate the inner life of this iconic revolutionary, who was at once an economic and social theorist, a political activist and a lyrical stylist. Her political concerns are revealed alongside her personal struggles within a socialist movement that was often hostile to independently minded women. This collection will provide readers with a newer and deeper appreciation of Luxemburg as a writer and historical figure. -- Publisher description
