Excerpt

This book is an earnest attempt to interest my fellow-citizens in the great problem of Russia's reconstruction. I have tried to present that problem as a challenge to America in the hope that I might thereby render a service of friendship to Russia and a service of loyalty to my own country.

My interest in Russia dates back to my boyhood. Thirty years ago it was my good fortune to fall under the inspiration of that great Russian, Sergius Michaelovitch Kravchinski, best known by his pseudonym, "Sergius Stepniak." That brave and brilliant revolutionist first aroused my interest in the Russian revolutionary struggle, and through all the intervening years that interest has grown. It has been my good fortune to know intimately and well many of the brave men and women whose courage and sacrifice maintained the long struggle against czarism. Inspired and guided by these friends, I have tried to understand Russia and its great political and economic problems.

This brief autobiographical note will serve to explain to the reader why I have felt justified in writing so freely about Russian problems, both in this volume and elsewhere. My studies of Russian history and politics antedated the Revolution by many years.
