Review quote

'A vivid account and complimentary to Reed's masterpiece Ten Days That Shook the World ... This fascinating book is an excellent insight to the revolutionary events of 1917-18, and how they transformed a young upper-class liberal into a fervent revolutionary' -- Socialist Appeal 'Price was a man with an instinctive feel for politics. He was better placed than most reporters to understand the depth of popular desire for change' -- Jonathan Steele, The Guardian 'An extraordinarily valuable compilation' -- Eric Hobsbawmshow more
