Publisher's Summary

The political theories of Lenin have long outlived him and have even gone on to outlive the Marxist state he help to found: the Soviet Union. The name Lenin still reverberates around the world, and yet Lenin is not even his real name. 

He was born Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov; the name Lenin was just the word he used to attach to his ideology. Lenin was just the brand he developed as he attempted to make good on his promise to export Leninism all over the world. 

Inside, you will hear about:

  • The birth of revolution
  • Lenin’s honeymoon in exile
  • Lenin’s blank check
  • Dealing with monarchist filth
  • Saving face
  • Voice of a nation
  • Russia holds its breath
  • And much more!

The man who came to be known as Vladimir Lenin almost single-handedly sparked Communist revolution in Russia, and he very nearly brought his brand of Marxism to the rest of the world. What drove him to do this? Where did he derive such an immense desire for societal change?

This audiobook serves to examine the landscape that brought such a pivotal figure to such prominence, examining all of the catalysts, from personal to national, that led the man known simply as Lenin down his inexorable path of revolution.
