First Published in 1961 Russia Forty Years On presents a comparative overview of Russian history from the Tsarist days to the Stalin Era. Morgan Philips Price looks back on Russia over a period of fifty years - the Tsarist time, the First World War, the October Revolution, and the time of Stalin; and describes his last visit there in the autumn of 1959. Though the book is mainly about Russia there are two chapters at the end about Germany and especially about that part which was under Russian influence. Having seen Russian Communism in its homeland, author compares it with what can be seen of it in Central Europe. This book will be an interesting read for scholars and researchers of Russian history, Communist history, and European history.
