Lenin For Today
By John Molyneux
A hundred years after the Russian Rolution Lenin remains a world historical figure of immense stature – but also a hightly contested one. In Lenin for Today John Molyneux rejects the conventional view that Lenin had a dictatorial attitude to working people and thus paved the way for Stalinism.
Instead, as global capitalism staggers from crisis to crisis and careers towards climate catastrophe, he argues that Lenin’s main ideas – on international workers’ revolution, opposing imperialism and war, overthrowing the state, the need for party organisation and the fight against oppression – remain vital and releveant today.
