The Crucifixion of Liberty

By Alexander Kerensky
Day, 1934
406 pp. $2.75

In this new volume of memoirs Kerensky has much to say of the revolutionary background of Russian history and of his own early life. He evidently does not now consider the old régime to have been as bad as it was pictured in 1917. In any case, it was pure liberalism compared to the present dictatorship. Russia was a real part of Europe and was fast progressing in the direction of freer institutions. In the discussion of his own career Kerensky presents an apology for his action, both in the Kornilov affair and in his treatment of the Bolshevik menace.
