    At Ringside for Workers and Farmers

    This beautiful two-volume edition is the best place to get a picture of what attracted millions of revolutionary workers to the communist banner during Lenin¿s time and what will attract many more millions to communism over the coming years, under the impact of years of imperialist war and economic depression. A call to workers and farmers to organize, to study politics, to defend ourselves against imperialist oppression, and to take power in our own name¿that is the call that rings out from the speeches and manifestos gathered in these volumes. The delegates are ordinary men and women discussing issues of total relevance for today: The importance of women¿s right to all workers and farmers, the struggle of the Muslim people against foreign domination, the need to support the Irish, Mid-Eastern,Latin-American, African, and Indian workers against British colonialism, the need to participate and lead wherever workers are in struggle, joining hands with any party of workers that attempts to seize power and take control of society out of the hands of the tiny class of greedy capitalists that currently rule most of the globe. This edition puts you at ringside for all the discussions with wonderful photo signatures, chronology, appendix, notes, and introduction. These volumes are rich for workers and youth who are looking at these questions for the first time as well as for scholars.

    The Russian Revolution: beacon of hope, example of struggle

    This impressive collection of resolutions, reports and discussion transcripts captures the flavor of the Second World Congress of the Communist International, as was as giving a nearly complete documentary record of the proceedings. The two-volume work, with over 1,000 pages, part of the 'Communist International in Lenin's Time' series, is the product of a large international team of researchers, translators and editors working under the direction of Pathfinder Press. The extensive Notes section, together with the carefully-prepared Introduction, Glossary, Chronology and Index, helps to orient the reader as to time and place, provides a solid grounding in the facts, and answers every question that might arise in the course of reading the book. The Russian Revolution of November 1917 was an immense upheaval in a massive empire bordering on many countries of Europe and Asia. The impact of the Russian events flowed outward across the borders and soon began to be absorbed by millions of workers and peasants throughout the world. These masses learned that in Russia a party of revolutionaries had organized the poor and downtrodden to take over the country. The wealthy aristocratic landowners had been driven out by peasants with pitchforks in hand. The capitalist factory owners and bankers had been forthrightly stripped of all their financial and industrial property, ousted from their exalted status, and the employees had begun the process of organizing production in collaboration with a government that represented their interests: a government of workers and farmers. What was the Communist International? Launched in the spring of 1919 by the Soviet Communist party, together with their comrades in other countries, it fulfilled the need felt by those millions of toilers to come close to this powerful new revolution, to learn about it, to emulate it, and to do in their countries what had been done in Russia. Further, it fulfilled the need of the Russian working people themselves to help to promote and organize world solidarity with the Russian Revolution. Only with this solidarity could the new proletarian regime survive the crippling onslaught of the armies of U.S. and European capitalism, in 1919 and 1920. The Soviet Communists, guided principally by Lenin, organized the Communist International to build leadership on a world scale to respond to these needs. The Second World Congress, held in Petrograd and Moscow in the summer of 1920, brought together some 218 representatives of revolutionary organizations from 37 countries. There they engaged in over 3 weeks of intense political discussion, debate and decision-making. The fundamental slogan of the Congress: 'Workers of the World and Oppressed Peoples, Unite!' encapsulates one of the central themes delegates struggled with: how to unify the workers movements in all countries with the masses of agrarian toilers; how to bring together the oppressed nations, struggling to achieve national liberation, with the workers movements in the capitalistically-developed countries. Other critical debates revolved around the nature of communist parties, their political program and organizational principles; the differences between the new communist movements and the now-discredited Socialist parties; and the relations between political parties of the working class and the trade unions. These discussions provide lessons that remain critical for fighting workers and farmers in today's world ¿ a world full of promise for a new rebirth of genuine communism.
