This is a narration of
the 37-page introduction to Lars Lih's excellent book Lenin
Rediscovered: What Is to Be Done? In Context. Going against
conventional wisdom, Lih presents a detailed study that paints
Lenin as an optimist inspired by the capacity of the working class
and determined to guide them to carry out their historic mission.
Furthermore, Lih identifies the German Social Democratic Party as
Lenin's ideal model of a revolutionary party, which he tried to
implement to the greatest extent possible in Russia.
