"To the Finland Station is, if not a great book, a grand book. It brings a vanished world to life. Writing history is an imaginative act."-Louis Menand, from the introduction
A vast, intellectually fascinating, and vigorous look at the history of socialism, Marxism, and communism leading up to the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. Communism is such a trigger for people that many will probably skip this book, although it delves into one of the most significant and influential (and, yes, destructive) political/historical/cultural events in modern history. Wilson has a idiosyncratic and probing writing style and is able to get into the heads of major figures like Marx and Lenin and articulate the intellectual arguments in a (mostly) accessible way. A key work of intellectual/political history.
