MEDIA REVIEWS

'...Turton has succeeded in (re)asserting the role of Lenin's sisters in the Russian revolution.' - Jane McDermid, Europe-Asia Studies

'Katy Turton's book makes a valuable contribution not only to Russian and Soviet women's history but also to studies of the changing trajectories of the Russian revolutionary movement...It is accessible to both undergraduate and postgraduate students alike, as well as providing as useful resource for researchers. If future biographers of Lenin chose to write their accounts without reference to Turton's study they will be doing us a great disservice.' - Melanie Ilic, Revolutionary Russia
