Lenin’s Moscow by Alfred Rosmer (Haymarket Books, £16.99)

WRITTEN by French revolutionary syndicalist Alfred Rosmer, this is a fascinating first-hand account of the immediate aftermath of the Russian Revolution.

Rosmer became a communist after the success of the Bolsheviks and was on the executive of the Communist International and the political bureau of the French Communist Party.

He spent much of the years from 1920 to 1924 in Soviet Russia, where he helped found and develop the Red International of Labour Unions.

Invited by Lenin, Rosmer’s journey to Russia was a feat of endurance which, due to the upheavals, chaos and poverty resulting from the war, took six weeks.
