Excerpt

The English edition ofN. Popov Outline History of the C.P.S.U. represents a translation of the latest, the sixteenth, Russian edition. Part I embraces the period from the early beginnings of the Russian labour movement down to the Revolution of October 1917; Part II covers the period from the October Revolution down to and including the Sixteenth Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union held in 1930.

A study of the history of Bolshevism is of great importance not only because of the significant place in world history occupied by the October Revolution and by the work of socialist construction being performed in the Soviet Union under the leadership of the Bolshevik Party, but also because of the pre-eminent part played by the Russian Bolsheviks in the international labour movement.

A more than superficial study of the history of the Bolshevik Party is impossible without a knowledge of the chief works of its founder and leader, Lenin, and of his best disciple, Stalin, who is continuing his work. While presenting a systematic exposition of the history of the Russian labour movement and of the October Revolution, N. Popov's book at the same time will serve as a valuable aid to the study of the works of Lenin and Stalin.
