By Catherine Merridale,Joan Rabasseda
En los primeros meses de 1917, cuando se iniciaba en Rusia l. a. revolución, en medio de las intrigas de agentes y espías que trataban de sacar partido de l. a. confusa situación del país, el gobierno alemán decidió ayudar a un grupo de revolucionarios exiliados en Suiza para que regresaran a Rusia, con l. a. esperanza de que contribuyesen a apartarla de l. a. guerra. Lenin y sus acompañantes atravesaron Alemania en un vagón sellado y, a través de Suecia y de Finlandia, consiguieron llegar a Petrogrado. Una vez allí, Lenin combatió los propósitos de quienes se contentaban con que l. a. revolución condujese a establecer una república burguesa, y fijó como objetivo el paso inmediato al socialismo: a una sociedad sin estado y sin clases. Así comenzó un nuevo rumbo para una revolución que iba a cambiar l. a. historia del mundo. Catherine Merridale nos ofrece una fascinante y documentada interpretación de estos acontecimientos y de sus protagonistas: una visión innovadora que nos ayudará a superar los tópicos establecidos.
