An interesting attempt to analyze the motives behind the Russian experiment and the new mentality of the Russian people. The author has had considerable experience of Russia and knows his ground. His book is less a study of conditions than a study of psychology and organization. Much space is devoted to an investigation of the initiative of the masses, as expressed in various movements and organizations.. Other parts of the book deal with the forms of control in the Soviet state, that is, with the communist party, its relation to the masses, and so on, and with the Bolshevik philosophy that lies behind it all.
