Professor emeritus, University of Glasgow Michael Kirkwood continues with a series of articles about the life and works of the brilliant postwar Russian philosopher, author, and dissident, Alexander Zinoviev.

Zinoviev defected to the West, but later regretted it and recanted his anti-Soviet activities. This is a very interesting and enlightening excerpt of his. – PC
