Join Ian Birchall to discuss the new edition of this classic book by Alfred Rosmer published by Haymarket Books.

When Alfred Rosmer arrived in Russia in 1919 it was considered by millions to be the center of world revolution. It was also a society beleaguered by civil war and encircled by hostile powers seeking to snuff out the promise and potential the first successful workers’ revolution represented.

It was in this context that revolutionaries from across the globe undertook the creation of the Communist International, hoping to forge an instrument to fan the flames of the struggle against global capitalism. In this gripping political memoir of his time in Moscow, Rosmer draws on his unique perspective as both a delegate to the Comintern—and as a member of its Executive Committee—to paint a stunning and inspiring picture of the early years of Soviet rule.

Ian Birchall is a socialist historian and translator based in London. His books include The Spectre of Babeuf, Sartre Against Stalinism, A Rebel’s Guide to Lenin, and Tony Cliff: A Marxist for His Time.
