Russia and the British Left Summary

Russia and the British Left: From the 1848 Revolutions to the General Strike by David Burke

The study of Marxism in Britain throws light on what many historians have referred to as `the enemy within'. In this book, David Burke looks at the activities of Russian political emigres in Britain, and in particular the role of one family: the Rothsteins. He looks at the contributions of Theodore and Andrew Rothstein to British Marxism and the response of the intelligence services to what they regarded as a serious threat to security. With access to recently released documents, this book analyses the activities of early-twentieth century British Marxists and brings to life the story of a remarkable family.

Russia and the British Left Reviews

By tracing the political careers of the emigre Theodore Rothstein and his British-born son Andrew, David Burke deftly guides the reader through many of the most important crises and controversies of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In doing so, Russia and the British Left poses crucial questions about the dynamic relationship between the British and Russian lefts in an era of uncertainty, war, and revolution. * Thomas Jones, Lecturer in History, University of Buckingham, UK *
