    Softcover, gently used.

    Originally published in 1940, Edmund Wilson's To the Finland Station is intellectual history on a grand scale, full of romance, idealism, intrigue and conspiracy, that traces the revolutionary ideas that shaped the modern world from the French Revolution through Lenin's arrival at Finland Station in St. Petersburg in 1917.  Fueled by Wilson's own passionate engagement with the ideas and politics at play, it is a lively and vivid, sweeping account of a singular idea ― that it is possible to construct a society based on justice, equality, and freedom ― gaining the power to change history.
