<P>Translated from the Russian in 1928, this and the second volume of the same title give an invaluable picture of what the Russian leader Joseph Stalin understood by Leninism. Building on the pamphlet <EM>Foundations of Leninism</EM>, (which forms the first part of this book) the work presents a unified and complete work on the problems of Leninism and socialist construction as they were manifested in the 1920s, as well as discussion of the October Revolution and the relationship of the USSR and the West in the years following the First World War. </P>

<P>Originally published in the UK in 1966, this was the first biography of Lenin which tied together extensive material unearthed in WWII, and it illuminates the complex personality and explains the riddle of Lenin's seemingly impossible rise to power. Using primary sources such as previously inacessible documents from the German, Austrian and Japanese foreign offices, and the vast holdings of the Hoover Institution, the book cuts through many comtemporaneous myths in Communist sources. The volume is a landmark in the study of the birth of Soviet Communism and its revolutionary enterprise. </P>

Among other things it focusses on the philosophy and psychology of Marxism, Marxian economics, Bolshevism, the philosophy of Lenin and his role as an engineer of revolution, the Mensheviks, and the anarchist contribution. </P>

<P>Originally published in 1989, this book presented the first study of the image of Stalin in literature. Analysing the literary presentaiton of historical character and the treatment of 20th Century tyrants in European prose fiction, the book draws a comparison between the depiction of Hitler in German literature and Stalin in Russian literature. It explores the way in which Stalin has been portrayed by Soviet, emigré Russian, and European writers including Orwell, Nabokov, Mandelstam, Pasternak and Solzhenitsyn. It examines in detail two important novels which had hitherto received little critical attention: the revised (1978) version of Sozhenitsyn's <EM>The First Circle</EM> and Anatoly Rybakov's <EM>Children of the Arbat. </EM>This book will be of interest to students of Soviet/Russian literature, history and politics and those intsted in the relationship between history and fiction in the 20th Century. </P>

<P>Originally published in 1984 this book reconsiders the effect of Lenin on the politics and culture of the 20th Century. In a detailed examination of Lenin's famous text, <EM>The State and Revolution</EM>, the author argues that the peculiar status of this work presents readers with major problems of interpretation and shows how a failure to identify these problems has prevented an adequate understanding of important issues in modern politics, history and social theory. The book compares Lenin's 'radical utopia' with the ideas of politics offered by other theorists, centrally Weber and Sartre, but also writers such as Jefferson and Habermas. This original approach shows the impact of Lenin's text on political history and theory and leads to a new understanding of the connection between revolution and violence, social change and authoritarianism. </P>

80 Jahre nach dem Erscheinen von Trotzkis Buch über die Februarrevolution und 30 Jahre nach dem Erscheinen der letzten vollständigen Ausgabe der 'Geschichte der Russischen Revolution' ist mit dieser Neuausgabe eines<br />der bedeutendsten historischen Werke des 20. Jahrhunderts jetzt dem Lesepublikum wieder zugänglich. <br />Auch 20 Jahre nach dem Zusammenbruch der Sowjetunion sind trotz zahlreicher historischer Detailstudien weder der Charakter der Oktoberrevolution noch die Degeneration und das Scheitern des aus ihr hervorgegangenen Arbeiterstaates einer breiteren Öffentlichkeit klar, obwohl die Existenz der Sowjetunion die gesamte Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts in einem hohen Ausmaß geprägt hat.<br />Nur die Schriften Trotzkis – das gilt vor allem für die beiden Bände zur 'Geschichte der Russischen Revolution', die 'Permanente Revolution' und die 'Verratene Revolution'– ermöglichen ein grundlegendes Verständnis des Aufstiegs, der Degeneration und des Zusammenbruchs der Sowjetunion und damit der Weltlage des gesamten vorigen Jahrhunderts. <br />Aber Trotzkis Geschichte der Russischen Revolution ist nicht nur ein geniales Werk der marxistischen Geschichtsschreibung, sondern gleichzeitig ein Stück Weltliteratur, das so manches fiktive Werk in den Schatten stellt. Der Autor beschreibt vom heutigen Standpunkt aus lange zurückliegende Ereignisse und Personen, aber seine Beschreibungen sind ungeheuer spannend und kurzweilig. In vielen Artikeln, Büchern oder Briefen finden sich Würdigungen von Trotzki als Schriftsteller. <br />Das Werk liegt in der hervorragenden Übersetzung von Alexandra Ramm-Pfemfert vor.

Customer Reviews
Outsiders view Russia as an aggressor, but Russians see themselves as surrounded by enemies, defensively fighting off invader after invader, or called upon by history to be the savior of Europe, or Christianity, or civilization itself, often at immense cost. As Gregory Carleton shows, war is the unifying thread of Russia’s national epic.
