Comments

"This book . . . is a work of considerable scholarship and the fruit of much archival probing by a fine scholar of early Bolshevism—and much of it is fresh, exciting and overdue. . . . It has a contemporary relevance since it is the first study of illegal funding—or, as we would say today, sanctions busting—on a colossal scale…This book is a superb work.  "

Simon Sebag Montefiore

Reviews: Literary Review

"Sean McMeekin has many talents: he can count, and he can handle sources in many languages; he also writes with great fluency. Here he takes on a guessed-at, but never really documented, subject: how the Bolsheviks stole Russian gold, sold it through silly-clever bankers in Sweden, and used it to buy even weaponry from their opponents. It is an extraordinary story, scholarship at its best."


Reviews: Norman Stone

"McMeekin’s prodigious research uncovers what may be called the financial history of the Bolshevik revolution. It is quite a remarkable book."


Reviews: Richard Pipes
