Nikolai Bukharin

Bukharin was the youngest of the senior leaders of the Russian October Revolution, sometimes described in the earliest days of 1917 as Lenin’s favourite. He had been judicially murdered after a grisly show trial which marked the culmination of Stalin’s round of purges in the late thirties. His widow and son struggled for decades to secure his rehabilitation.

The Memoirs of Nikolai Bukharin's Widow
By Anna Larina
Introduction by Stephen F. Cohen

'I lived with Nikolai Ivanovich Bukharin, my husband, through what were both the happiest and the most exciting days of our lives. But our last six months together were made so difficult, so painful, that each day felt like a century. This memoir of that time was written over the many years since, set down in fragments whenever I found relief from family worries and cares. Yet, not for a moment did I forget the disastrous events of my youth. Not for a single day did terrible memories fail to trouble my mind and shake my very soul.

You must understand that, from childhood, I lived among people who were totally dedicated to the cause of socialist revolution. First, of course, was my father, Yury Larina (Mikhail Aleksandrovich Lurye). Amazingly brilliant and astonishingly courageous, he probably played the decisive role in the formation of my character and convictions. In addition, since he was a steadfast friend of Bukharin, it was as a young girl that I first came to know the man to whom I would later be linked
by destiny.' Anna Larina, from her preface


'As Stephen Cohen notes in this fine introduction, apart from the books of Trotsky and Stalin's daughter, this is "the only uncensored memoir ever to appear from inside the highest levels of that historic and doomed world." It is an enthralling book.' Foreign Affairs

<span style='font-size: 14px;'>The Case of Nikolai Bukahrin</span>The Case of Nikolai Bukahrin
By Ken Coates

A remarkable international campaign is developing strength, on behalf of a man who was executed more than 40 years ago, in 1938, Nikolai Bukharin, colleague and pupil of Lenin, editor of Isvestia, head of the Communist Internationsl and distinguished Marxist scholar, who was shot after he had been compelled to confess to conspiring with Trotsky and others to bring about the downfall of the Revolution in which he had been so colourful a figure.

Bukharin and his colleagues were the victims of the most cynical frame-up of the Century. This book shows how the basis of the indictment against Bukharin has completely crumbled away, even though the Soviet authorities have once again refused to permit the reopening of this case, and justice is still withheld.

The evidence presented includes important documents on the struggle of the Bukharin family for the good name of their most famous relative.

At the same time, Ken Coates shows that the Bukharin case still has profound political implications both for the USSR and the world-wode socialist movement.
