About the Author

Alfred Rosmer (1877 1964) became a committed revolutionary syndicalist in the early years of the twentieth century, and was one of only a handful of French socialists who opposed the First World War from the outset. The victory of the Bolshevik revolution in Russia led him to become a communist. He attended the Second, Third and Fourth Congresses of the Communist International and was a member of its Executive Committee. He also played a leading role in the founding of the Red International of Labour Unions and was a member of the political bureau of the French Communist Party. Though he was expelled from the French Communist Party in 1924, he remained a convinced revolutionary until his death. 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.

Reviews

"Rosmer's book should be on the shelf of every militant." -Christopher Hitchens "Lenin's Moscow remains a vital primary source for historians of the International, written by a participant witness. Rosmer's account is clear and unpretentious, and can also serve as an introduction for those beginning to study the subject. Rosmer's narrative sets the debates in their historical context, making us aware of the danger of repeating quotations from Lenin or Trotsky torn from the circumstances in which they were originally made." -Ian Birchall, from the new preface
