International Publishers was founded in 1924 by Alexander Trachtenberg, who emigrated to the U.S. after the failed 1905 revolution, and Abraham Heller, a progressive U.S. businessman. Both men were personally acquainted with VI Lenin. Trachtenberg, who had been an officer in the Tsarist army and was an early Bolshevik, was responsible for some of the earliest translations of the works of Lenin into English. Heller had been granted a concession during the NEP period in Russia and used some of the money he made to help start IP.
