Summary Probing the Ulyanov family archives, historian Philip Pomper uncovers Alexander Ulyanov's transformation from ascetic student to terrorist, and the impact his fate had on his younger brother Lenin. Vividly portraying the psychological dynamics of a family that would change history, "Lenin's Brother" is a perspective-changing glimpse into Lenin's formative years--and his subsequent behavior as a revolutionary.
