Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism


In stock


Written during the carnage of World War I, Lenin’s famous work was designed to show that imperialism was the essence of capitalism, not simply a policy chosen by its leaders. Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism is presented here in a modern edition with an introduction putting the work in its historical and political context and with extensive explanatory notes. An appendix containing another wartime work by Lenin, Imperialism and the Split in Socialism, rounds out the analysis by focusing on how imperialism enables the ruling class to cultivate a procapitalist current within the labour movement.
