Lenin: A New Biography by Dmitri Volkogonov
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 564 MB
Overview: Dmitri Volkogonov used over 3700 documents from the once secret Soviet archives to create this new biography of V.I. Lenin. Traditionally portrayed as an idealist whose vision of a communist society was corrupted by those who followed after him in the Soviet Union, Lenin is here shown as the creative authority behind many of the excesses of Stalinism, including the creation of concentration camps, and repression of the church and the media. In short, Lenin is depicted as a cruel and totalitarian leader.
