Russian Mensheviks were driven out of Soviet Russia and their party stripped of legal existence. However, they continued to function abroad and to operate underground in Soviet Russia. Through archival information and eyewitness interviews this book recreates the Soviet experience through the eyes of the best informed observers of the 1920s and 1930s. The Menshevik's analysis and reflections illuminate the causes of the failure of the Soviet experiment. The book also probes the fate of Marxism and democratic socialism as it tracks the activities and writings of this group of men and women.
