(In Review column)
BY BRIAN WILLIAMS
An upgraded edition of Lenin's Final Fight with a new introduction by Jack Barnes and Steve Clark has just been published by Pathfinder Press. The Spanish edition La última Lucha de Lenin is now available and the English version will be out in mid-February.
The book documents the political battle led by Vladimir Lenin within the leadership of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union between September 1922 and March 1923 to continue advancing the political course that brought the workers and peasants of Russia to power five years earlier.
These lessons are invaluable for working people today. "As capitalism in the twenty-first century enters its deepest economic and social crisis since the decades spanning the first and second imperialist world wars," the introduction states, "programmatic and strategic matters in dispute in the communist workers movement in the early 1920s once again weigh heavily in prospects for the working class worldwide to advance along its historic line of march toward the conquest of power."
The introduction summarizes the central questions in this fight that affected the lives of tens of millions.Read more ›
