by Marcel Liebman
A winner of the Isaac Deutscher Prize
Liebmann highlights democratic dimensions in Lenin's thinking as it developed over 25 years.
'I have not come across anything which captures so well the complexities of Lenin's positions.' Ralph Miliband.
'The author of this historical study of Lenin's political activities and theories combines a sympathetic understanding of Lenin's positions with a critical approach making it one of the most informative books on Lenin that have been written.' Labour Research.
'From [this book] there emerges a living and eminently revolutionary Lenin, not a "blunted" one - that is, a Lenin who sometimes hesitates and makes mistakes, who seeks his way forward with the help of a theory which is not a ready made answer to every problem ... there is a striking similarity with the masterly biography of Trotsky by Isaac Deutscher.' Ernest Mandel
