This first volume of writings and speeches for the Communist International covers the period of its first four Congresses when the post-war revolutionary upsurge reached its peak and then began to recede. It establishes, without fear of contradiction, the important role which he played in the foundation of this, the Third worker’s International, and in the formation and early development of the French, German and Italian Communist Parties. At this time the theory of ‘socialism in one country’ had not yet been invented and Joseph Stalin was still a second-line Bolshevik leader who played no part in the international movement which he was later to pervert and eventually destroy.
