Lenin Today: Foreword
AbstractThe purpose of the special issue will not be to eulogize Lenin or celebrate his achievements: others can be counted on to perform these functions. What MR can most usefully do, we think, is to bring together a number of thoughtful assessments of Lenin's main theoretical contributions in the light of subsequent developments and the present state of the world revolutionary movement. Perhaps the most important result we could hope to achieve would be to stimulate younger people who have only recently come to the movement to undertake their own study of Lenin's works.
