“Ali encourages the reader to take a fresh look at Lenin’s choices in the context of a repressive autocracy, the poverty and misery of the bulk of the population under tsarism and the industrialised slaughter of the first world war. What underpins his book is the view that October was an ‘innocent and utopian birth’ that was subsequently ‘twisted’ into Stalinism by three devastating years of civil war.”
—Daniel Beer, Guardian
“Reading this book on your vacation will make your life better and your mind broader.”

The work itself is scholarly-like with footnote citations where necessary yet not overly inudating with stale self-laudation that is typical of a ivory tower tenants.
In the spirit of Antonio Negri this work is necessary in todays ideologically sterile world. Empty consumerism can be juxtaposed on the 1970's. The Brigate Rosse, German anarcho leftist guerrillas FORCING the state apparatus to address working class people. We must return to ideology.
" The Dilemmas of Lenin" succeeds in both Enlightening and Clarifying Lenin's ongoing importance , for both " Students and Newcomers to Lenin's importance as a " Domenica " of Political Thought.
