A Martian Stranded on Earth

This chapter focuses on the collapse of Alexander Bogdanov's vision of a socialist society with his death in 1928. It highlights the transformation of the blood research institute into the center of a countrywide system of blood services following the extensive militarization of Russia. This chapter cites scientific journal reviews indicating the success of Bogdanov's ideas and investigates why the direction of blood research turned into medieval mysticism after his death.
