From Peter the Great to Lenin. A History of the Russian Labour Movement
From Peter the Great to Lenin. A History of the Russian Labour Movement
By S. P. Turin
King, 1935, 229 pp.

This is a valuable book which fills an important gap in the history of recent Russian developments. The author, relying very largely upon Russian materials, gives a systematic account of the labor movement, with special reference to the prewar period, thus throwing much light on the evolution of the workers' councils and soviets.
