The Life and Times of Victor Serge

With Susan Weissman, Professor of Politics at Saint Mary’s College of California, award-winning broadcast journalist, and author of the book Victor Serge: A Political Biography.

About the book: 

The first biography to give due weight to the commitment and optimism of this great political thinker
Revolutionary novelist, historian, anarchist, Bolshevik and dissident – Victor Serge is one of the most compelling figures to have emerged from the history of the Soviet Union. A dedicated activist who joined the Bolsheviks in 1919 and fought in the siege of Petrograd, only to be later consigned to poverty and persecution for rejecting both capitalism and Stalinism, he was a keen observer of his times. Carefully wrought and meticulously researched, Susan Weissman’s Victor Serge is the definitive biography of an extraordinary man.
