"For more than a century Lenin has been a constant source of inspiration for workers and revolutionaries striving to shape democratic and equitable societies throughout the world. Unfinished Leninism is a powerful and stimulating guide to Lenin’s political thought and abiding legacy that is essential reading for students and activists who are striving to realize an ethical and revolutionary democratic society today."—Immanuel Ness, Ours to Master and To Own and Encyclopedia of Revolution and Protest.

“Illuminating much misunderstood aspects of Lenin's legacy with flair and originality, Paul Le Blanc breathes new vigor into a century-old approach to social transformation. A major addition to our understanding of twenty-first century socialism.”—John Riddell, editor Toward the United Front

"One doesn’t have to be a Leninist to read and appreciate Paul Le Blanc’s brilliant essays. This is indeed an outstanding study of Lenin’s ideas, his relation to Leon Trotsky and Rosa Luxemburg, as well as his unfinished democratic revolutionary legacy."—Michael Löwy Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Paris.

"Paul Le Blanc likes to "spin his remarks around quotations", and luckily he is a great quoter. He finds eloquent comments from a century's worth of activists and historians, and engages with them passionately. He lets us have our own voice (I say "us" because I am honored to be among those quoted) and yet weaves all the quotations into a searchingly individual view of what it means to be a leftist and a self-proclaimed Leninist in the twenty-first century. And indeed, his conception of the way forward for the left centers on listening, and then on presenting one's own view forthrightly -- on conducting an adult conversation about life-and-death issues. To read his book is to join in his questing interrogation of past, present, and future."—Lars Lih, author Lenin Rediscovered

"Unfinished Leninism is a stimulating book on the life and ideas of Lenin but also on the history and future of the doctrine connected with his name."—Ron Blom, De Socialist

Praise for Lenin and the Revolutionary Party:

"A work of unusual strength and coherence, inspired not by academic neutrality but by the deep conviction that there is much to learn from the actual ideas and experiences of Lenin and the revolutionary party he led.” —Michael Löwy

Praise for Revolution, Democracy, Socialism:

“We desperately need the resurrection and revival of the kind of strategic thinking and principled commitment that Lenin epitomised in the era of 1917, and all that it promised. For those interested in this rebirth of the politics of alternative to capitalism, Paul Le Blanc's account of the democratic, socialist, and revolutionary Lenin will prove indispensable. Reading it is a reminder that what is, need not be, and that what has, seemingly, failed, can be reconstituted anew.” —Bryan Palmer

Praise for Marx, Lenin and the Revolutionary Experience:

“Looking back at the tumultuous events associated with revolutionary Marxism in the past century, Paul Le Blancoffers us an insightful, sympathetic, and even-handed assessment of the sources of its dynamism as well as the causes of its decline.” —Walden Bello

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Paul Le Blanc is a professor of History at La Roche College, has written on and participated in the U.S. labor, radical and civil rights movements, and is author of such books as Marx, Lenin and the Revolutionary Experience, and Lenin and the Revolutionary Party.

HASH(0x93557a5c) von 5 Sternen I strongly recommend this book for readers interested in anti-capitalism 6. Januar 2016
Von Otto Hampel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A compelling account of the achievements of Leninism, complex in its analytic approach and highly relevant to scholarly research. Readers will be impressed by Paul Le Blanc's recognition of the enduring significance of VI Lenin, among the most important political figures of the 20th century, whose stature continues to expand. Le Blanc shows us that Lenin was uncompromising in his strategic and tactical analysis and application of a realistic approach to achieving power for the working class. As in Le Blanc's other works on Lenin, I strongly recommend this book for readers interested in anti-capitalism, socialism, and political strategy. Strongly recommended for historians and social scientists.

HASH(0x935531a4) von 5 Sternen Repetitious waste of time and lack of analysis 1. September 2015
Von Samora - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This was a huge disappointment. A collection of too many, too short, and too similar texts (which, by the way, read more like short propaganda pieces from any trotskist newspaper), this book offers absolutely nothing new on neither Lenin nor his thought. If Leninism is 'unfinished', this book makes a very poor job in explaining how this is so.

An excellent supplement to LeBlanc's seminal work "Lenin & the Revolutionary Party." This collection of essays proves well that - just like Lenin himself - Leninism is an evolution of strategy & tactics.

[[ASIN:1935907859 Avant-Garde Politician: Leaders for a New Epoch

In the middle of the book some issues of historiography are taken up, including the advantage and disadvantages of "activists" engaging in writing history (pp, 100-102). The author recognizes the danger "to settle into a basic, overarching historic narrative" (p. 102) - but without sensing that he himself does so, with resulting complete misunderstanding of the world.

Thus, the author repeatedly postulates that "the times in which we live seem to grow more terrible (p. 23), which factually is not true, despite looming dangers. The achievements of China and India are ignored. And, worst of all, this book is blind to the metamorphosis into which humanity is cascading, drives by science and technology. Thus, with advanced robots doing most of the "blue color" and increasingly "white color" work of humans, and large parts of the "ex-proletariat" spending more time at shopping centers or looking on soap operas, all talk on "salvation" coming from "the masses of workers and destitute" is a phantasm. True, global capitalism causes many dismal problems which need radical treatment, such as a progressive global capital tax. But salvation will not come from the ideas or actions of neo-Leninists, such as advocated in this book.

"Remaking" Lenin into a "proletarian democrat" by exegesis of his pronouncements does not help. On the contrary: what made Lenin a great leader, despite fatal misunderstandings of human beings and of historic processes, is exactly the fact that he "held a view of man as modeling clay and sought to create a new model of human nature and behavior through social engineering of the most radical kind," making Bolshevism into "the most audacious attempt in history to subject the entire life of a country to a master plan (p. 8). It is exactly this heroic endeavor, however fatally flawed, which makes Lenin into a tragic historic personality.

The author quotes in an endnote (p. 212, n. 12) from Eric Hobsbawm "Lenin's `party of a new type,' a formidable innovation of twentieth-century social engineering,, comparable to the invention of Christian monastic and other orders of the Middle Ages. It gave even small organization disproportional effectiveness...." This indeed was a main invention of Lenin, contrary to any form of democracy. But, pushed into a footnote, Blanc does not give due weight to this correct evaluation.

Trying to eradicate this "Lenin" from history by making him into a "democrat," while offering lessons for the future from obsolete an ideology - add to the lack of interest of this book other than for a irrelevant "sect."

Surely the world needs radical changing; otherwise calamities are sure to come. And there is something to learn from Lenin, in particular his recognition of the need for an avant-garde leadership (as discussed in my recent book), together with his doubts about the "masses" and their supposedly self-organizing capacities. But falsifying the realities of Lenin and demonstrating in a text published in 2014 total ignorance of the impacts of science and technology, make this book not worth touching. Honorable moral intentions, which the author clearly has, are not enough.
