Review

'Dr Service has made excellent use of freshly available original documents but even without them this book would have been outstanding.' - Susan Walker, International Affairs

'...immensely detailed, scholarly biography....' - Richard Pendry, New Statesman and Society

'Robert Service takes such a most welcome broad view in the second volume of his projected trilogy... For this eagerly awaited end to his labours, all power to the Service elbow.' - Paul Dukes, Times Higher Education Supplement
