The glorification of Spartacus in the revolutionary mythology and martyrology of the Soviet Union has lead to great distortions in historical accuracy. This book chronicles the changing attitudes to Spartacus in Soviet historical writing, and the fate of some of those who have sought to get back to the ancient sources or have dared to question the official history'. This eye-opening essay in historiography is supported by an extensive bibliography of Russian writing. Revised version of the text published in Germany in 1983.
