Fidel Castro Handbook
Fidel Castro Handbook
by George Galloway
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Find out who Castro really is, 6 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fidel Castro Handbook (Hardcover)
I was a little disappointed, but perhaps I was wanting more. George Galloway has done a good job, his interviews will be enlightening to those who have been taken in by all the American poison over the years, and the photographs are superb.
This handbook would be a great starting point for anyone searching for the truth


Lenin and the Russian Revolution
Lenin and the Russian Revolution
by Christopher Hill
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Christopher Hill at his best, 6 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lenin was not the monster that we in the west have been taught to believe, How different the world may have been had he lived just ten years longer. Christopher Hill writes with honesty and understanding of the subject that could teach all of us a lesson, Although written 67 years ago, any student of modern History,would surly benefit by having a copy of this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALWAYS SEEK THE TRUTH, 29 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tony Benn had more passion for ordinary people and their hopes and fears, then any of the M.P's we have today.
His warmth and humanity shine through every page, yes he was not always correct, but he was not a phony,or, dis-honest
He never stopped questioning, something many of us in older years forget to do. The world is a colder place since his death.


Letters To My Grandchildren
Letters To My Grandchildren
by Tony Benn
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound advice for all Grandchildren, 29 Jun 2014
Being a Grandfather, I found this book humanely moving, How do you tell your grandchildren that your generation made a mess of things, yet give them advice about their future?. If you don't know, read this book.

This review is from: The Spirit of '45 [DVD] (DVD)
The wonderful work carried out by the Labour Government of 1945, when our country was flat broke and almost starving, should NEVER be ignored or scoffed

Wells, as only Wells can be. If you start this book you have to read it to the finish, Wells will always be the first and last in this field.


The Shape of Things to Come: The Ultimate Revolution
The Shape of Things to Come: The Ultimate Revolution
by H.G. Wells
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Not at his best, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The reader must at all times remember that this book was written in 1933,six years before the onset of WW2.
But Wells was spot on with his ideas about the so called Polish corridor,being the starting point of the German excuse to invade Poland. His tale of the Japanese invasion of China is also uncannily true, his views of the 1950/60's are wide of the mark, but, read between the lines and perhaps they are not as wide as we can make them.
The dream of a better world is there for all to dream, perhaps we should all wake up


Russia in the Shadows / H. G. Wells
Russia in the Shadows / H. G. Wells
by Herbert George (1866-1946) Wells
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Putting a fairer view on the early Soviet Union., 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a pity that Lenin died so soon after the 1917 revolution. This book gives a much more balanced view of the early days of the the Soviet Union warts and all. Strange how people today forget that the U.K. the USA and France all sent troops to Russia, in 1919 in an attempt to overthrow the peoples revolution. The world today may have been a better place ,if they had sent food and medical aid.
This is a book to be read by any student of 20th century politics
