Lenin’s Struggle for a Revolutionary International is the first in a series that will publish the documents of the Communist International in Lenin’s time. It covers the years of 1907-16, charting the Socialist International’s efforts to counter the threat of world war, its collapse when war was declared in 1914, and the subsequent effort by the Russian Bolsheviks to reestablish working-class unity and build a new revolutionary International. Featured in this book are proceedings from international Socialist conferences; debates among Socialist leaders such as Karl Kautsky, V.I. Lenin, Rosa Luxembourg, and Leon Trotsky; and all the statements of the Zimmerwald Left, the forerunner of the Communist International.
