it more powerfully, poetically, and honestly than Vijay Prashad' --
Robin D. G. Kelley, author of 'Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical
'An original and much needed analysis of an important but neglected aspect of the legacy of the Russian Revolution. Prashad insightfully explains how Lenin's development of Marxist theory has inspired revolutionary practice in the Third World. Essential reading' -- Mary Davis, Marx Memorial Library
