Russia’s Relation to Universal History

by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

In the light of universal history, the apparent complexities of the 1905-1996 history of Russia, and all of the important features of the earlier history of Russia, fall into place with a beautiful truthfulness, including the central fallacy of Bolshevism.”
