Young Michael Bakunin came from Priamuchin, Russia's heartland, into the mid-nineteenth century Western Europe's revolutionary scene and left an indelible trace in history. Europe brimming with social change, seemed to be ready for that seeker of new ideas: cultural, philosophical, religious, later the indomitable writer, propagandist and organizer of revolutionary upheavals one of the leader of what can be described in short as the counterculture of his times. The interest in Bakunin's ideas, later known as the founder of anarchism, and his tumultuous life, seem to be insatiable. Libraries of book were written about him, to mention only the latest trilogy by Tom Stoppard. To the authoress to read a new book about Bakunin, especially one coming form Poland, where he used to be almost a taboo for many years, held a special fascination.
