Description
The gripping untold story of a terrorist leader whose deathwould catapult his brother -- Lenin -- to revolution.

In 1886, Alexander Ulyanov, a brilliant biology student, joineda small group of students at St. Petersburg University to plot theassassination of Russia's tsar. Known as "Second First March" forthe date of their action, this group failed disastrously in theirmission, and its leaders, Alexander included, were executed.History has largely forgotten Alexander, but for the most importantconsequence of his execution: his younger brother, Vladimir, wenton to lead the October Revolution of 1917 and head the new Sovietgovernment under his revolutionary pseudonym "Lenin." Probing the Ulyanov family archives, historian Philip Pomperuncovers Alexander's transformation from ascetic student toterrorist, and the impact his fate had on Lenin. Vividly portrayingthe psychological dynamics of a family that would change history, Lenin's Brother is a perspective-changing glimpse intoLenin's formative years -- and his subsequent behavior as arevolutionary.
