From Marxist revolutionary to American academic, this book reveals the life of one of revolutionary Russia’s most distinguished and controversial engineers – Iurii Vladimirovich Lomonosov (1876-1952). The book employs an exceptionally rich base of high-quality primary sources, that not only provides a much-needed account and assessment of Lomonosov’s life, but also contributes to the growing academic interest in the history of science and technology in Russia and the Soviet Union.
