Reviews

"Anderson shows that Lenin, despite his critical attitude toward nationalism, had been the first major political theorist to grasp the significance of national liberation movements."

--Terry Eagleton, author of Criticism and Ideology

"This book brings to life a new and unexpected Lenin, poles apart from both wooden 'Marxist-Leninism' and dismissive Western scholarship"

--Michael Löwy, author of Ecosocialism

"With impressive argumentation and wide-ranging scholarship, Anderson presents us with a Lenin that no one seriously interested in current debates over the relevance of Marxist theory to socialist practice can afford to miss."
--Bertell Ollman, author of Dialectical Investigations

"An important contribution to grasping the conceptual roots of Marxist theory and practice."
--Tom Rockmore, author of Hegel's Circular Epistomology

"Today Lenin looks like he did little more than prepare the way for Stalin. You will find the opposite view in this novel study ... I recommend the book to anyone seriously interested in Russia and revolution."
--George Uri Fischer, author of The Soviet System and Modern Society
