The Zinoviev Controversy Resolved
The controversy surrounding the publication of the Zinoviev letter in October 1924 has close parallels with events today: was it leaked by British officials or fake news to influence the outcome of the forthcoming election? This book overturns the generally accepted view about its authenticity, proving it was genuine.
John Symons is a historian with a life-long interest in Russia and the Soviet Union. His previous books include ‘A Tear in the Curtain’ and ‘Love is His Meaning’.
It is happening now…!
John Symons is an interesting writer/ historian. I look forward to reading his account of the Zynoviev letter
A thoroughly engaging and well-researched book. Congratulations John!
Congratulations on the launch of your new book John. The knowledge and passion you embrace is reflected so well in the book as always.
Looking forward to reading the book.
A very interesting, well-written and thought provoking research resulting in the unveiling of faked fake-news and the far reaching & enduring consequences of truth being questioned and put in doubt by credible suggestion. This is so relevant in today’s climate – especially with added social media involvement. I recommend reading it!
John’s knowledge and interest in Russia and the previous Soviet Union make this book a must read .
A must read!
Well done John!
What an interesting book
John always researches his topics meticulously and this book is no exception. It makes fascinating reading!
A well researched and convincing argument on the truth behind the Zinoviev letter which should settle the controversy once and for all.
I’m sure it will be as thought provoking as previous publications – a truly engaging author
Clear, compelling and convincing.
Another fine book, John.
This is such a thought-provoking and stimulating read, original and ground breaking and most relevant to today. One can have full confidence in the integrity of John Symons’ research and in the depth of his knowledge of Russo-British relations and of the mentality and internal workings of the Bolshevik state created by Lenin. His ability to set all this in the context of twentieth century European politics and civilisation more broadly brings another dimension to the story. Highly recommended.
John Symons, as we have come to expect, writes elegantly, sensitively, and with penetrating clarity. In this truly sensational book he applies such gifts to develop a compelling argument, based on profound and measured knowledge of his subject matter. It is so absorbing it can be read at a sitting and to great profit by someone without knowledge of the Soviet or British history of this period as much as by experts. This a splendid book which deserves the greatest and widest possible accolades.
Greatly admire your research John, and look forward to reading this latest book over Christmas.
John Symons brings scholarship and sensitivity to an enduringly fascinating subject.
John is such an expert author with his splendid array of subject matter. Another great read on a real Deja -vu scenario.
I HAD NEVER HEARD OF THE ZINOVIEV CONTROVERSY UNTIL I READ JOHN SYMONS ON THE SUBJECT; AND I FOUND HIS BOOK TO BE FASCINATING – A GOOD READ, AND A BEAUTIFULLY CONCISE ARGUMENT TO SUPPORT HIS FINDINGS. THE SUBJECT IS PARTICULARLY GERMANE, GIVEN THE SUSPICION THAT FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS HAVE INTERFERED IN RECENT ELECTIONS IN THE WEST. I HOPE THAT IT REACHES A WIDE READERSHIP. IT CERTAINLY DESERVES TO.
This is a convincing and compelling book, ground breaking & very readable, meticulously researched and argued.
Excellently researched and presented. If only more people steeped in dogma would take note of the scary details that John’s research exposes it would benefit us and our future relations with other countries. Thanks John.
A must read book. Add it to your reading list
John is a man of profound insight akin to the recent testimony of Dr.Fiona Hill to US congress
Well done, John, your research is always so careful, and your style direct. Good luck! Anne.
I am sure this is a must read given John’s scholarship.
John has written a number of books and this is one of his best. His clear, lucid writing style and painstaking research into his subject ensures that what you get is a fascinating and thought provoking read. Until I picked up this book, I have to confess that I knew nothing about the Zinoviev letter. I was curious because the issue chimes neatly with the current controversy relating to alleged Russian interference in U.S. elections. You don’t have to be a history buff to enjoy this book. I thoroughly recommend it.
Excellent – as one has come to expect from John.
John – Many congratulations on the new book. As with the previous publications, I’m very much looking forward to reading it. – Julyan

Another successful book by John Symons, illustrating the depth of his knowledge. It is a compelling arguement, which should be read.
A remarkable story—compelling, convincing.
And so true nowadays!
Congratulations John. Fascinating reading – at long last.
Well done! Fascinating reading – at long last.
Hi, maybe i’m being a off topic here, but I was browsing your site and it looks exceptional. I’m writing a blog and trying to make it look neat, but everytime I touch it I mess something up. Did you design the blog yourself? Could someone with little experience do it, and add updates without messing it up? Anyways, good information on here, very informative.
I enjoyed reading through your post. I really agree with what you wrote.
I’ve read some good stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how much effort you put to create such a great informative website. Healthy Marriage
