Editorial Reviews

BookNews
This is the second and final volume in an incomplete series by Dobbs (the National Secretary of the Socialist Workers Party from 1953 to 1972) that had been planned to historically trace the efforts of revolutionary Marxists in the United States to develop "the cadres of a proletarian revolutionary party needed to lead the fight to end capitalist rule, establish a workers' and farmers' government, and open the road to a socialist order" from its beginning roots in European Marxism through to the 1960s. This volume covers the years 1918 to 1922, a time of tumultuous working class struggles across Europe, the United States, and Asia; and the years in which the Communist International sought to build parties that could lead these battles to revolutionary victories. Dobbs' narrative continues along the key lines he explores in the first volume: the fight to organize the working class into industrial trade unions; the fight for political and social consciousness and action by the workers' movement; and the fight for an independent working class political party. Dobbs completed two volumes reaching to the year 1922 before his death in 1983. Revolutionary Continuity is primarily a historical discussion based on previous narratives and the written record of participants. Later volumes were to incorporate Dobbs's recollections of his own personal involvement in seeking to build a proletarian vanguard party. An appendix includes 4 letters from Lenin to left-wing socialists in the United States referenced in the text. (Annotation ©2010 Book News Inc. Portland, OR)
