Classics No. 5: 'Left Wing' Communism

Left Wing Communis,The fifth title in Classics of Communism series, this is a reproduction of the orginal pamphlet by Lenin with a new introduction by Robert Griffiths and updated notes.

Lenin wrote most of Left-Wing Communism in April and May 1920, on the eve of the second congress of the Communist International—the newly-formed organisation of Communist parties—and while preparations were underway to found a Communist Party in Britain. His main concern was that after breaking from the social-democratic and labour parties—most of which had sided with their own ruling class in the 1914-18 imperialist war—fledgling Communist parties were in danger of going too far to the left and losing touch with realities.

Whilst some of the critiques of individuals and groupings who fell foul to 'Left-Wing' Communism may appear dated Lenin presents a detailed analysis on the strategy and tactics of the class struggle which still have relevance today.

Elections & Class Struggle

Elections & Class StruggleThis new pamphlet by John Foster examines how Communists have worked politically within the labour movement to win, as Lenin argued, a mass understanding of the need to challenge and replace capitalist state power. More specifically it looks at each historical period and examines the two interlinked aspects of this work: the party's relationship with the Labour Party and the role of the Communist Party's own electoral activity.'

Classics No. 4: Dimitrov on Fascism

For the Unity of Working Class Against FascismFrom the Classics of Communism series, this pamphlet is a reproduction of Dimitrov's speech to the seventh world congress of the Communist International on August 2nd 1935. It is a brilliant example of the combination of theory and practice. He puts the case that Fascism must be challenged by the building of a united front of left and working class organisations around which a anti-fascist people's front can be built.

Dimitrov's analysis of the character of fascism as well as the relative successes and failures in countering the fascist threat at the time make this pamphlet a must read for anti-fascists of every stripe.
