> Lenin Rediscovered: What Is To Be Done? in Context

> "It would be difficult to praise too highly Lars Lih's contribution  
> to such an honest reassessment of Lenin's thought." --Paul  
> Blackledge, International Socialism
>
> "Extraordinary and extraordinarily welcome."--John Molyneux
>
> "A magnificent contribution to our understanding of V.I. Lenin,  
> Bolshevism, Marxism, and the history of the Russian revolutionary  
> movement and of Communism." --Paul LeBlanc
>
> "Historians of the Russian Revolution owe a great debt to Lars Lih.  
> The new textbook on the formative years of Bolshevism is much more  
> convincing than the old version." --Kevin Murphy
>
> In this impressive work, Lih presents an innovative challenge to the  
> prevailing perspectives on one of Russian revolutionary V. I.  
> Lenin's most important essays. While conventional wisdom has been  
> contented to caricature What is to Be Done? as the definitive  
> example of Lenin's authoritarian and elitist method, Lih traces this  
> document's roots in the social and political debates of Russia's  
> emerging socialist movement, and reinvigorates the debate unfolding  
> today by introducing a comprehensive new translation of Lenin's  
> original text.

> The Revolution and the Civil War in Spain
> Pierre Broué and Emile Témime
>
> In the 1930s, Spanish workers and peasants captured the world's  
> attention, bursting out in rebellion against poverty, oppression,  
> and a monarchy frequently dependent on military repression for its  
> survival. But the Spanish revolution quickly encountered critical  
> challenges-from its leadership's confusion over their final goal to  
> the rising of a fascist army led by Francisco Franco. In their  
> unparalleled study, Broué and Témime detail the internal dynamics  
> and the external obstacles that led one of the world's most  
> promising movements for human liberation to fascist defeat.

> Myths of Male Dominance
> Collected Articles on Women Cross-Culturally
> Eleanor Burke Leacock
>
> "Highly recommended, both as a critically presented state-of-the-art  
> discussion and as an account of how one's personal/political history  
> informs the process of scientific inquiry."-Choice
>
> This classic anthropological study debunks the many myths behind the  
> idea of "natural" male superiority. Drawing on extensive historical  
> and cross-cultural research, Eleanor Burke Leacock shows that claims  
> of male superiority are based on carefully constructed myths with no  
> factual historical basis. She also documents numerous historical  
> examples of egalitarian gender relations.

> The German Revolution: 1917-1923
> Pierre Broué
>
> In the wake of a victorious worker's revolt in Russia, a  
> revolutionary tide shook Europe, and in Germany, the worker's  
> struggle appeared likely to succeed. In this magisterial work, first  
> published in 1971 and still unsurpassed, Pierre Broué meticulously  
> reconstitutes the six years during which-between "ultra-leftism" and  
> "opportunism," "sectarianism" and "revisionism," "activism" and  
> "passivity"-the German revolutionaries attempted to begin a new  
> chapter in the history of the working class. Their defeat merits  
> close attention, both for its role in the tragic direction in which  
> German history proceeded, and for its lessons for Marxists and  
> progressives today.

> The Theory of Revolution in the Young Marx
> Michael Löwy
>
> In the 1840s, the young German journalist Karl Marx developed ideas  
> about modern society that remain as relevant today as when they were  
> first developed. Here, Löwy shows the lasting force of Marx's early  
> writings on alienation and emancipation, and traces their genealogy  
> among the intellectual currents of the day.  By contextualizing  
> Marx's unique reconciliation of materialism with dialectics among  
> the intellectual debates and nascent workers struggles of the era,  
> Löwy brings to life the founding ideas of one of the world's  
> foremost social theorists.

> Between Equal Rights: A Marxist Theory of International Law
> China Miéville
>
> Drawing on Marxist theory and a critical history of international  
> law from the sixteenth century to the present day, Miéville examines  
> international legal norms and shows that they have always been  
> complicit with the violence of empires.
>
> "Miéville's brilliantly original book is an indispensable guide for  
> anyone concerned with international law. It is the most  
> comprehensive scholarly account available of the central theoretical  
> debates about the foundations of international law. It offers a  
> guide for the lay reader into the central texts in the field and it  
> mounts a formidable challenge to experts to address fundamental  
> theoretical issues about the subject, which are too often simply  
> ignored."
