Resumen:

Lenin's Private War: The Voyage of the Philosophy Steamer and the Exile of the Intelligentsia : In 1922, Vladimir Lenin personally drew up a list of some 160 "undesirable" intellectuals - mostly philosophers, academics, scientists, and journalists - to be deported from the new Soviet State. "We're going to cleanse Russia once and for all" he wrote to Stalin, whose job it was to oversee the deportation. Two ships sailed from Petrograd that autumn, taking Old Russia's eminent men and their families away to what would become permanent exile in Berlin, Prague, and Paris. Through journals, letters, memoirs, and personal accounts, Lesley Chamberlain creates a rich portrait of these banished thinkers and their families. She describes the world they left behind, the émigré communities they were forced to join, and the enduring power of the works they produced in exile.
