Lenin's Electoral Strategy from Marx and Engels through the Revolution of 1905
The Ballot, the Streets—or Both
Authors: Nimtz, A.
- About this book
This book explores the time in which Lenin initiated his use of the electorate, beginning with the Marxist roots of his politics, from his leadership of Russian Social Democratic Labor Party in the First and Second State Dumas to Russia's first experiment in representative democracy from 1906 to 1907.
"August Nimtz presents a challenging and controversial thesis: Vladimir Ilyich Lenin made elections of all things central to his revolutionary strategy in Russia. No less distinctive is his well-documented contention that Lenin's thought was fundamentally democratic, deeply rooted in the theoretical and practical-political contributions of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. A vibrant contribution to the swirl of scholarly and political debate, Nimtz's impressive work will generate new insights in history and present-day realities." Paul Le Blanc, Professor of History, La Roche College, USA and author of Lenin and the Revolutionary Party
