De Pierre Le Grand à Lenine

By Marc Slonim
Nouvelle Revue Française, 1933

A talented Russian journalist's interesting analysis of the ideas underlying the development of socialism in Russia during more than a century. Beginning with the early military conspiracies after Peter the Great, M. Slonim outlines very fully the intellectual socialism of the first half of the 19th century and the practices and theory of nihilism and terrorism in the latter half, leading to the revolutionary outbreak of 1905. His pictures of the individual leaders are vivid. From 1905 on the story is adequate but less complete and interesting.
