Upon its publication in 1940, Time magazine immediately recognized Wilson's intellectual history: "Because it makes Marxist theory, aims and tactics intelligible to any literate non-Marxist mind, To the Finland Station is an invaluable book." Wilson took six years to write his academic tour-de-force, and "[i]n an age of historical amnesia, To the Finland Station can remind us that our history is alive and open and rich with excitement and promise" (The New York Times Book Review).
