The State and Revolution (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin)

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin


In July 1917, while the Provisional govt issued a warrant for his arrest, Lenin fled from Petrograd; later that 12 months, the October Revolution swept him to excellent strength. within the brief intervening interval he spent in Finland, he wrote his impassioned, never-completed masterwork The nation and Revolution. This powerfully argued publication bargains either the explanation for the recent regime and a wealth of insights into Leninist politics. It was once right here that Lenin justified his own interpretation of Marxism, savaged his rivals and set out his trenchant perspectives on type clash, the teachings of past revolutions, the dismantling of the bourgeois kingdom and the substitute of capitalism via the dictatorship of the proletariat. As either historic record and political assertion, its value can rarely be exaggerated.
