Brave, principled, beautiful, Alexandra Kollontai was the only woman in Lenin’s government—and one of the most famous women in Russian history. Passionate defender of the true ideals of the revolution, she knew that revolution was not enough—that real political change could only come with a transformation in personal and family relationships.

No one understood better the conflict between love and work—her life, both personal and political, was always stormy. She was a brilliant thinker, writer and organiser, and intensely loyal to those she loved. Her ideas are as important today as they were in her own time. In this magnificent and definitive biography, Cathy Porter offers a major re-interpretation of an inspiring life.
