504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 256-309) and 
520    The study of native 'Marxisms' in Britain throws light on 
       what many historians have referred to as 'the enemy 
       within'. In this book, David Burke looks at the activities
       of the Russian political emigre community in Britain, and 
       in particular the role of one Russian-Jewish political 
       family: the Rothsteins. Theodore Rothstein and his son 
       Andrew, along with his sister-in-law Zelda Kahan and her 
       husband, W. P. Coates, together played an important part 
       in the formative years of the Communist Party of Great 
       Britain and were closely monitored by the British secret 
       service. This led to claims that British communism was 
       effectively a Russian creation with Theodore Rothstein 
       acting as the eminence grise; the hidden hand of Moscow 
       controlling the British left-wing movement. In 1920 
       Theodore Rothstein's activities on the left of the British
       labour movement assisted the formation of a Communist 
       party in Britain affiliated to the Comintern. Theodore was,
       soon after, effectively debarred from Britain following a 
       visit to Russia, at which point his clandestine political 
       activities passed to his son, Andrew. This book 
       encompasses two periods. The first looks at the 
       contribution of Theodore Rothstein to British Marxism and 
       the response of the British intelligence services, Special
       Branch and MI5, to what they regarded as a serious threat 
       to British security. The second part probes Andrew 
       Rothstein's subsequent career, and considers four main 
       events: the formation of the Anglo-Russian Committee in 
       1924, the Zinoviev Letter, the General Strike of 1926 and 
       the ARCOS Raid of 1927, and concluding with Andrew 
       Rothstein joining his father in Moscow in 1930. With 
       access to recently released documents from MI5, this book 
       sheds new light on the activities of British Marxists 
       against the backdrop of the early twentieth century and 
       brings to life the story of a remarkable family. --
