About the Author
Victor Serge was born to Russian emigre parents in Belgium in 1890. After five years imprisoned, he returned to revolutionary Russia but was later exiled for protesting against the purges. Writing numerous novels, poems, memoirs and political essays he prefigured Solzhenitzyn by decades, believing: "He who writes is above all one who speaks on behalf of all those who have no voice." Dalia Hashad is an ACLU organizer for the Campaign Against Racial Profiling (Arab, Muslim and South Asian Advocate)

The later chapters of the book defend clandestine organizing and the use of violence in social movements. More troublingly, the last chapters Serge defends the use of _the same tools of repression employed by the Tsar_ by communists after the revolution. This lamentable position was taken by Serge shortly after the success of the October 1917 revolution. The writings of an older, more disillusioned Serge make it clear that he rejected this naive belief in "working class repression" once the abominable nature of Stalin's Cheka became clearer.
