This book, published in 1963, is described as 'the most important single work from Lenin's pen. Published in 1902, it contains the basic Leninist ideas on organization, strategy, and tactics, which have since underlain the activities of the Russian Communist Party, the Soviet Government, and the world Communist movement. This new translation is primarily intended for the student of political theory. The Notes at the end, arranged in alphabetical order, deal with persons, publications, organizations, etc., mentioned in Lenin's text and likely to be unfamiliar to a present-day reader. The Introduction surveys the ideas advanced by Lenin in the pamphlet, and traces, in the light of recent research, the origins of these ideas in earlier Russian revolutionary thought.'
Book in very good condition, with some fraying the dust jacket's edges.
