Alexander Bogdanov (1873-1928) was a Russian polymath, a man who could do almost anything. It was said that he never forgot anything he read. His principal occupations were as a physician, revolutionary and writer. Unfortunately, he ran afoul of Lenin, who was a far more successful politician. As director of his own institute of blood transfusion in Moscow, Bogdanov died from an unsuccessful blood transfusion experiment. This book includes a biographical essay on Bogdanov, a translation of his book on viability, his report on the first tweo years' activities of his institute, and the further history of that institute to the present day.
