For their help and critical advice along the way, many thanks to Lars Lih, David Walters, Danny Hayward, Wiktor Marzec, Krystian Szadkowski, Agata Zysiak, Kamil Piskała, Ivars Ijabs, Sami Suodenjoki, Paula Rauhala, Risto Turunen, Tauno Saarela, Marjaliisa Hentilä, Ralf Hoffrogge, Brian Porter, Zbigniew Kowalewski, Brendan McGeever, Charlie Post, Samuel Farber, Jake Blanc, Isabel Pike, Olivia Lichterman Gamboa, everyone in Bread and Roses-DSA, Jason Farbman, Bhaskar Sunkara, Micah Uetricht and the whole Jacobin crew, all those who housed me on my research trips, and the countless librarians and archivists upon whom I depended in Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Latvia, Finland, Germany, France, and the United States. Countless thanks to Galit Gun for all her love and patience, and for making my life so much brighter this past year. A very special thanks to John Riddell and Sebastian Budgen, without whose support and intellectual engagement this book would not have been possible.

Above all, I would like to thank my mother Lita and my father Alan – I couldn’t ask for more loving parents or better political role models – and my brother Jake, my best editor and my best friend.
