    Although it was easy to comprehend perhaps this book was a little too easy to comprehend I would have liked detail on the Soviet Union's ethnic makeup and how that impacted Lenin and Stalin's views of foreign policy Further I find it surprising that for a book that talks so extensively of different Comintern members and Foreign ministers Soviet Foreign Policy perhaps mentions Trotsky five times Nevertheless reading this book helped me understand much about Stalin's and Lenin's ideology
