This biography of English author, spy, and Bolshevik sympathizer Arthur Ransome provides readers with both a historical look at a fascinating life amongst the travails of war and revolution, as well as a personal exploration of the internal conflicts of a man caught between conflicting loyalties and lifestyles. The work explores Ransome's early life and his work as a writer and journalist, his failed first marriage, and the effects of his experiences on his later career in the nascent Soviet Union. The volume will appeal to general readers as well as historians and includes several black and white photographs. Chambers is a writer and specialist in Russian politics.
