Praise for Paul Le Blanc's Lenin and the Revolutionary Party:
"A work of unusual strength and coherence, inspired not by academic neutrality but by the deep conviction that there is much to learn from the actual ideas and experiences of Lenin." —Michael Löwy
As a leader of the Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin was perhaps the greatest revolutionary of the twentieth century. These clearly written essays offer an account of his life and times, a lively view of his personality, and a stimulating engagement with his ideas.
Paul Le Blanc is a professor of history at La Roche College and has written widely on radical movements.
