Customer Review

on 30 December 2007
There is no doubt that Lenin achieved a level of recognition that will continue for as long as humans maintain a sentient capacity. The fact remains, however, that he gained this recognition largely through his association with others. Robert Service's biography does not acknowledge this aspect. In fact, those central to Lenin's rise are not even mentioned.
Martin Amis brilliantly encapsulated this problem in his 2004 Guardian review: 'Service's biography of this unique figure is flawed not by its inclusions but by its myopic exclusions. It is impossible to present a balanced account of Lenin without reference to the other three Beatles.'
