"...and so carefully argued

For what it's worth (and I know I've said this before) I don't actually think Reisch's book is "carefully argued", if by that you mean that it works hard to get the best understanding of the events. Rather, it seems to me to be politically motivated and partisan in a way that leads him to largely ignore a lot of plausible interpretations.

As for Russell, I think that Charles Pidgen's contribution to the Cambridge Companion to Russell does a very nice job of showing that his moral and political thought is under-rated (no doubt by Russell himself, maybe because of his acceptance of a somewhat vulgar form of emotivism at some point.) His book _Roads to Freedom_, though, to take one example, is a very careful and useful discussion of socialism, anarchism, and syndicalism that still pays studying today.
