Auteur: Weissman, Susan
Titel: Victor Serge (hardcover)
Sub titel: The Course is Set on Hope
A Belgian-born Russian, Serge was twenty-eight when he first set foot in his homeland in 1919. An active anarchist, he soon joined the Bolsheviks, went on to participate in the first three Congresses of the Comintern, and fought in the siege of Petrograd. Dissenting with the Party's terror and bureaucracy he became an active Left Oppositionist, and finally after many years in prison fled to France in 1936 and to Mexico in 1940. Throughout his life he wrote prolifically of his times: novels and short stories, biographies of Lenin, Stalin and Trotsky, and an enormous archive of unpublished work including correspondence and polemics. Susan Weissman's biography reveals the extraordinary commitment and hope of this political writer and reveals views that reflect the significant historical struggles of our own time.
