About the book:

Out of the chaos following Lenins death and the mounting fury against Lukács and his freshly penned History and Class Consciousness (1923), this book bears an assessment of Lenin as the only theoretical equal to Marx. Lukács shows, with unprecedented clarity, how Lenins historical interventionsfrom his vanguard politics and repurposing of the state to his detection of a new, imperialist stage of capitalismadvanced the conjunction of theory and practice, class consciousness and class struggle. A postscript from 1967 reflects on how this picture of Lenin, which both shattered failed Marxism and preserved certain prejudices of its day, became even more inspirational after the oppressions of Stalin. Lukácss study remains indispensable to an understanding of the contemporary significance of Lenins life and work.
