Victor Serge - still relevant,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Memoirs of a Revolutionary (New York Review Books Classics) (Paperback)
I very much enjoyed reading this complete edition of the Memoirs of Victor Serge; the previous version had been condensed, whereas this version missed nothing out. The transition of the writer from an anarchist in Belgium and Spain to the Bolshevik Party in Russia is fascinating, but even more stunning is the honest critique of the way in which the Bolsheviks came to believe that they were right and everyone else was wrong to such an extent that they began to eliminate all opposition to their ideas.
