Marxism vs. Liberalism - An Interview
In 1934 H. G. Wells visited the Soviet Union, and on the 23rd of July he interviewed Joseph Stalin. Their conversation, which lasted for almost three hours, was recorded by Constantine Oumansky and is here presented. Before publication, the resulting text was approved by Wells and deemed to be sufficiently accurate. This fascinating and unique interview offers a rare insight into the mind of the famous Soviet dictator and is highly recommended for those with an interest in both Stalin and his interviewer. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Although never a winner, Wells was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature a total of four times. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
