About The Book

Marxism in Russia: The Origin, Development and Decline of a Doctrine, Volume 1 (1861-1907) traces the origin and development of scientific socialism in a backward country like Russia since the abolition of serfdom (1861) and in the process, examines various contending schools of thought such as Narodism, Legal Marxism, Economism, etc. It also deals with the contributions of Plekhanov, the father of Russian Marxism, particularly his critical analyses of eighteenth century materialism. French, English and German Utopian Socialism, nineteenth century German idealism, evaluation of Hegel's concept of dialectics and its limitations. Feuerbach's materialism highlighting the indebtedness of Marx and Engels to Hegel and Feuerbach. The volume ends with a thorough study of the ideological conflict within the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (RSDLP) leading to its split into two factions (Bolsheviks and Mensheviks), the first Russian Revolution (1905 1907), and the long polemics on tactics of proletarian struggle for its emancipation from the shackles of Tsarist autocracy.
