Lenin: The Man Behind the Mask
In this accomplished biography of Vladimir Lenin, Ronald Clark fills in the gap left by political, economic and social historians: Lenin's personality. Clark introduces readers to Lenin, the man: an enthusiastic mountaineer with a sardonic sense of humor; an affectionate husband with a long-rumored affair. Clark examines and describes the personality of one of the most dedicated and single-minded political leaders of the 20th century.
