9780300076622: The Unknown Lenin: From the Secret Archive (Annals of Communism Series)

Was Lenin a visionary whose ideals were subverted by his followers? Or was he a cynical misanthrope, even crueler than Stalin? This book, which contains newly released documents from the Lenin archive in Russia, lays bare Lenin the man and the politician, leaving little doubt that he was a ruthless and manipulative leader who used terror, subversion, and persecution to achieve his goals.

Edited and introduced by the eminent scholar Richard Pipes in collaboration with Y.A. Buranov of the Russian Center for the Preservation and Study of Documents of Recent History in Moscow, the documents date from 1886 through the end of Lenin's life. They reveal, among other things, that:

· Lenin's purpose in invading Poland in 1920 was not merely to sovietize that country but to use it as a springboard for the invasion of Germany and England;

· Lenin took money from the Germans (here we have the first incontrovertible evidence for this);

· in 1919 Lenin issued instructions to the Communist authorities in the Ukraine not to accept Jews in the Soviet government of that republic;

· as late as 1922 Lenin believed in the imminence of social revolution in the West, and he planned subversion in Finland, Turkey, Lithuania, and other countries;

· Lenin had little regard for Trotsky's judgment on important matters and relied heavily on Stalin;

· Lenin assiduously tracked dissident intellectuals and urged repressive action or deportation;

· Lenin launched a political offensive against the Orthodox Church, ordering that priests who resisted seizure of church property be shot--"the more the better."

Review:

Since the fall of Communism in Russia, the Kremlin archives have yielded a hitherto hidden history of the Soviet regime. Richard Pipes, emeritus professor of Russian history at Harvard and author of Russia Under the Bolshevik Regime, is the principal editor of this first collection of secret Lenin papers published in English. The collection reveals sides of the Bolshevik leader long guessed at in the West but never proven, particularly his efforts to subvert the West. Such revelations make this volume an invaluable historical tool that helps part the Iron Curtain of silence and disinformation.

From the Back Cover:

Lenin - the man, the revolutionary, and the world leader - has remained an enigma, part myth arising from the tumult of the Russian Revolution and part image carefully controlled for nearly seventy years by the leaders of the Soviet Union and their sympathizers abroad. The Unknown Lenin, containing long concealed documents from the Soviet archives, helps correct the myth and revise the image. Lenin emerges here as a ruthless, manipulative leader who used terror, subversion, and persecution to achieve his goals.
