London: Wishart and Company, 1932. First Edition. Very uncommon title. "The effect on a group of Russian engineers of the arrival of a young Englishman who is seeking an outlet in the virile atmosphere of revolutionary Russia for his dynamic energy and scientific talents. Counter revolutionaries have to be fought back in order that the bridge may be built; there are intrigues among the Soviet workers themselves; and love affairs are not less intense though women are imbued with the new ideas. A study of the chief character is absorbing as an appraisement and criticism of the Communist idea from the point of view of a convinced individualist". Near Fine (but for minor bowing to covers and some mis-cut pages at fore-edge), in Very Good dustjacket, dime sized chip at top spine end.
