    One thought on “Unfinished Leninism: The Rise and Return of a Revolutionary Doctrine”

    1. Kept waiting for the author to argue why Lenin's ideas should be emulated, rather than modified or discarded, but if the author did I must have missed it. Some interesting tidbits on historiography and theUK SWP's scandalous handling of an accusation of rape , but I can't say that I enjoyed the book.

    2. Great collection of essays addressing Lenin's personality and political method, aspects of the application of Leninism in different countries including Britain and the US, and sustained engagements with scholars like Lars Lih and Charlie Post, hacks like Alex Callinicos, as well as morons like Louis Proyect and Pham Binh. Highly recommended.
