Summary:
Lenin's 'What Is to Be Done' has long been seen as the founding document of 20th century revolutionaries, revealing Lenin's elitist and manipulative attitude towards workers. In this new translation, with extensive commentary, Lars T. Lih uses hitherto unavailable contextual information to fundamentally challenge this reading.
