V. Neprash of Philadelphia. Good. Hardcover.
Neprash was a Baptist, a Russian convert who made his way to the United States. He writes, "While speaking in Churches on the situation in Russia, I often described the conversion of Mr. G. Solomon whom I met in Brussels, Belgium, two years ago. A former pupil of Karl Marx, the father of Communism, and co-worker of Lenin, he had been Secretary of Commerce and Industry in the Soviet Government and later the Director of the famous 'arcos' in London, that caused the British Government so much trouble. A man of unusual ability, a physician by education, he was a staunch believer in Communism and actually did his best to create a new life in Russia through that experiment...I can safely say that nothing in my minute seventeen year study of Communism helped me to understand the real teaching and practice of this movement as Mr. Solomon's book did. Others who read it in Russian, expressed the same opinion. To many doubters, the book proved to be an eye-opener. It is worth passing on, recommending and presenting to others, especially to those who know the theory of Communism only."
