Vel så mye som å være en detaljert biografi om Lenin, forteller boken historien om den russiske revolusjonsbevegelsen og Sovjet-russland fra 1917-1924.

A week with Gandhi by Louis Fischer( Book )
17 editions published between 1942 and 2015 in English and held by 365 libraries worldwide
Louis Fischer, famous international reporter, was permitted a week in the guesthouse near Gandhi's headquarters, and daily interviews with the great Indian leader. He kept virtually a stenographic report of his conversations, livened with personal comments, swift pen pictures of Gandhi and his followers, as he encountered them that week last June. One follows the workings of Gandhi's mind, which, as Fischer says, is the reason for misapprehension only too often, for Gandhi thinks and speaks simultaneously, and sometimes subsequent statements seem to contradict previous ones, while actually he has simply shared his process of reasoning to a point with his hearers. The most striking evidence of this during Fischer's stay was his expansion of his basic position to indicate that he had, reluctantly, reached a point of accepting the inevitability of India continuing to be a military base for United Nations. He and Nehru agree in feeling that religious differences will be merged, once freedom is granted, that Pakistan is only a bargaining card with England, and so on. Exciting reading, as yet another facet of this tragic, complex problem
