Lenin, Hegel, and Western Marxism

A Critical Study

This first full-length treatment of Lenin's studies of Hegel presents Lenin as a major figure in Hegelian Marxism, providing a more nuanced portrait of his work than that of either official Marxist-Leninism or most Western accounts.

"With impressive argumentation and wide-ranging scholarship, Anderson presents us with a Lenin that no one seriously interested in current debates over the relevance of Marxist theory to socialist practice can afford to miss." -- Bertell Ollman, author of Dialectical Investigations

"An important contribution to grasping the conceptual roots of Marxist theory and practice." -- Tom Rockmore, author of Hegel's Circular Epistomology

"Today Lenin looks like he did little more than prepare the way for Stalin. You will find the opposite view in this novel study. . . . I recommend the book to anyone seriously interested in Russia and revolution." -- George Uri Fischer, author of The Soviet System and Modern Society
