Carr’s Changing Views of the Soviet Union

  • R. W. Davies


Carr embarked on his 14-volume History of Soviet Russia in 1944 at the age of 52, and completed it 33 years later at the age of 85. For Carr the writing of the History was the culmination of his life’s work and his most important contribution to human knowledge.
