New York W. W. Norton & Company 2009 0393070794 / 9780393070798 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Only slight wear to dust jacket ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; B&W Photographs; 9.30 X 6.30 X 1 inches; 304 pages; "In 1886, Alexander Ulyanov, a brilliant biology student, joined a small group of students at St. Petersburg University to plot the assassination of Russia’s tsar. Known as “Second First March” for the date of their action, this group failed disastrously in their mission, and its leaders, Alexander included, were executed. History has largely forgotten Alexander, but for the most important consequence of his execution: his younger brother, Vladimir, went on to lead the October Revolution of 1917 and head the new Soviet government under his revolutionary pseudonym “Lenin. ”Probing the Ulyanov family archives, historian Philip Pomper uncovers Alexander’s transformation from ascetic student to terrorist, and the impact his fate had on Lenin. Vividly portraying the psychological dynamics of a family that would change history, Lenin’s Brother is a perspective-changing glimpse into Lenin’s formative years and his subsequent behavior as a revolutionary. 11 black-and-white illustrations"

A History of Twentieth-Century Russia, Service, Robert
6 Service, Robert A History of Twentieth-Century Russia
Cambridge, MA Harvard University Press 1998 0674403479 / 9780674403475 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Only slight wear ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; 9.49 X 6.43 X 2.23 inches; 654 pages; "Russia has had an extraordinary history in the twentieth century. As the first Communist society, the USSR was both an admired model and an object of fear and hatred to the rest of the world.How are we to make sense of this history? A History of Twentieth-Century Russia treats the years from 1917 to 1991 as a single period and analyzes the peculiar mixture of political, economic, and social ingredients that made up the Soviet formula. Under a succession of leaders from Lenin to Gorbachev, various methods were used to conserve and strengthen this compound. At times the emphasis was upon shaking up the ingredients, at others upon stabilization. All this occurred against a background of dictatorship, civil war, forcible industrialization, terror, world war, and the postwar arms race. Communist ideas and practices never fully pervaded the society of the USSR. Yet an impact was made and, as this book expertly documents, Russia since 1991 has encountered difficulties in completely eradicating the legacy of Communism.A History of Twentieth-Century Russia is the first work to use the mass of material that has become available in the documentary collections, memoirs, and archives over the past decade. It is an extraordinarily lucid, masterful account of the most complex and turbulent period in Russia's long history."
