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.
