'It is a splendid piece of work, almost a work of scholarly benediction: the message comes through that Sukhanov, much maligned and neglected for decades, was in fact one of the great moral forces in both the history and historiography of the Russian Revolution.' - Robert Service, St Antony's College, Oxford
'This important work will be essential reading for all serious students of the Russian revolution.' - James D. White, Slavic Review
