This is a narration of
the ninth chapter and conclusion of Lars Lih's excellent book Lenin
Rediscovered: What Is to Be Done? In Context. In this chapter, Lih
explores the debates between Bolshevik and Menshevik RSDWP members
after their infamous split at the party's Second Congress. The
conclusion hammers home Lih's insightful critique of the "textbook
interpretation" of Lenin broadly and WITBD in particular, revealing
the former as an optimistic and dedicated Erfurtian
book contains much more content, including informative appendices
and Lih's original translation of WITBD. You can purchase a
