This is an auction for LENIN FOR BEGINNERS by A & Z.

[MARX FOR BEGINNERS is in a separate auction.] reviews:

"Lenin's dream was the creation of the world's first Socialist state. It was a short-lived dream that became a nightmare when Stalin rose to power in 1929. Lenin was the avant-garde revolutionary who adapted Marxist theory to the practical realities of a vast, complex and backward Russia. Is he chiefly to blame for opening the way to the totalitarian regime of Stalin? Readers will be able to judge for themselves. Lenin's career is depicted in this book from his obscure provincial origins to architect of the Bolshevik October Revolution, and his ideas, his genius for underground organization and strategies for agitation are explained. It is impossible to estimate the events in post-communist Russia and Eastern Europe without some basic grasp of the Russian Revolution and Lenin's role in it. This book aims to make that history accessible and digestible."

"FIVE STARS!! This book is full of surprises. Don't be misled by the title "for beginners". I am sure most Soviet history gurus will learn some new details about the foundation period of the Soviet Russia. The unbelievable accuracy of every saying and the detailed sketches make the book a treasure for the reader."

"FIVE STARS! After reading this book, I realized that Leninism was just a development of Marxism. Lenin fought against Imperialism, practiced by the United States through the banking system and cartels. Lenin's concept of the vanguard party and the practical application of Marxism in the urban areas is commonly known as the insurrectionist form of people's war. This is the best book written about Leninism!"
