Shelves: biography
Having read Fischer's biographies of Lenin and Gandhi as a kid, I picked up his autobiography at a used bookstore with some interest. His story is that of many progressives during the first half of the 20th century: qualified enthusiasm for the workers' states in Europe followed by disillusionment. Unlike some others, however, Fischer remained an active progressive until his death in 1970.
