Historical Writings — Karl Marx & Frederick Engels Vol. II
This volume is a collection of Historical Writings of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. All of them were written immediately after the events of which they treat. They contain a masterly analysis of the historical events of the time. On the basis of concrete material, Marx gives striking examples of the materialist explanation of history. Each one of these works is a masterly historical investigation. But the theoretical analysis of the events does not by any means exhaust the significance of these historical works. Marx’s work as historical investigator is intimately bound up with the practical struggle of the proletariat. Marx was not only a scientific investigator, he was above all the leader of the proletariat, the leader of its vanguard—the Communist Party. Historical research and a scientific explanation of the facts of the class struggle provide the foundation for the strategy and tactics of the proletarian party, the party that leads the struggle of the proletariat for power, for the overthrow of the bourgeoisie, for the complete transformation of society.
Materials for study of Marx’s activity as leader of the Party will also be found by the reader in the Party documents and letters that are included in the present volume. The writings and documents collected in this edition give the reader sufficient material for studying the foundations of the theory and policy of scientific communism as created and developed by Marx and Engels.
How Capitalism was Restored in the USSR
The ideological significance of this book is indisputable from the perspective of building a thorough and well-defined Marxist-Leninist understanding on the problems of socialism and capitalist restoration. It holds immense significance even today for ideological preparation of all those who are committed to the reconstruction of the socialist project. To understand the great achievements as well as the causes of defeat of the proletarian revolutions of the twentieth century and also understand the nature and problems of socialism is extremely essential for the proletarian fighters who are committed to turn the new round of world historical battle between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie into a decisive and conclusive battle in the twenty-first century. It is also important for the intellectuals who have chosen to be on the side of the proletariat and who want to deeply know and understand the science of proletarian revolution.
Hundred Day War: The Cultural Revolution at Tsinghua University
This book presents with graphical detail the events unfolding in the Tsinghua University during 1966-1968 and in the process it attempts to show how the debates which were carried out during the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution for waging sustained struggle against the bourgeois values and institutions in all the fields of superstructure including politics, education and culture and against the capitalist-roaders, for creating an environment of broad mass participation by unleashing the mass initiative in the struggle and for maintaining the proletarian dictatorship in all the fields of superstructure were manifesting on the ground level and how the two line struggle in the field of education was taking the shape of a broad mass movement. The book contains an effective description of the nature of the old revisionist education in Tsinghua University and why and how the common students rose to struggle against it! How the question of political consciousness was resolved in practice during the struggle; how the two-line struggle took place among the students; how the ultra left-wing deviation emerged during the struggle between left and right in the movement and how it was eventually defeated; how the revolutionary transformation of students and teachers was unfolding during the struggle; how people were changing themselves in the process of changing the things and how the working class made decisive intervention in class struggle in the field of education. All this is detailed in this book in the form of a very interesting reportage.
Immortal are the Flames of Proletarian Struggles
This essay was published in the Hindi journal ‘Dayitvabodh’ in its May-June 1992 issue.
The world has undergone many changes since the time of its writing but the summation of the first round of the great world historic class war for the emancipation of the proletariat and the predictions made in it are still basically correct. In fact, the world situation today is proving correct the statements about the second round of the world historic class war.
We believe that this will be important and thought-provoking material for proletarian revolutionaries and left intellectuals as well as all those who have an interest in reading about the development of Marxist science.
Joseph Stalin : A Political Biography
Karl Marx and Frederick Engels
This book by David Riazanov is one of the best introductions to the lives and work of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels. It includes an introduction written by Dirk Struik for the edition published by Monthly Review Press in 1973. Struik was a well-known Mathematician as well as an authority on this subject and his notes added to the book are helpful in placing the facts in the right context.
The footnotes marked with numbers were added by D. Riazanov in the original edition and those marked with an asterisk are by Prof. Struik. The notes by Struik were at the end of the book in the 1973 edition which has been placed as footnotes for convenience of the reader.
The book has not been available in India before and it is out of print even in the USA for over two decades. We hope this volume will be useful for serious readers of Marxism as well as those who want to know about the life and work of these two great men who have changed the course of human.
Ludwig Feuerbach and the End of Classical German Philosophy
This book by Engels was originally written as a review article on a book on Feuerbach by C.N. Starke. In this book, Engels shows how the advance was made from Hegelian idealist dialectics to materialist dialectics and from mechanical to dialectical materialism.
This English edition of Frederick Engels’ Ludwig Feuerbach and the End of Classical German Philosophy is reproduced from the First Edition published by Foreign Languages Press, Peking in 1976.
This is a translation of the Foreword and text of the German edition of 1888, including Karl Marx’s Theses on Feuerbach. This translation follows that of the English edition of Selected Works of Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, Vol. II, Foreign Languages Publishing House, Moscow, 1951, with corrections where necessary on the basis of the original German text in Marx and Engels, Werke, Vol. 21.
The Appendices consist of Plekhanov’s Forewords to the first and second Russian editions of Feuerbach and of his Notes to the Russian editions. The translation of Plekhanov’s Foreword to the first Russian edition and of his Notes to the Russian editions follow that of the English edition of Selected Philosophical Works of Plekhanov, Vol. I., Foreign Languages Publishing House, Moscow, with numerous and often drastic revisions and corrections, where necessary, by the FLP, Peking. Plekhanov’s Foreword to the second Russian edition was translated from the Russian original in Selected Philosophical Works of Plekhanov, Vol. III.
The notes on Engels are based on those in the above-mentioned German and English editions. Those on Plekhanov are largely based on those in the English edition of Selected Philosophical Works of Plekhanov, Vol. I. and in the Russian edition of Selected Philosophical Works of Plekhanov, Vol. III.
