Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0813310385, Hardcover)

In this volume, Hugh Phillips provides a biography of Maxim Litvinov, a Bolshevik revolutionary who began his professional life running guns into Tsarist Russia and eventually became the leading Soviet diplomat in the turbulent 1930s. He consistently advocated a policy of co-operation with the Western democracies in spite of Stalin's hostile attitude toward the West. When he passed away in 1951, Litvinov left behind a political legacy that lay dormant until its recent revival by Mikhail Gorbachev. The book is based on extensive research in the Soviet Union and the West, including previously unavailable archives and interviews with Litvinov's friends and family.
