Arrigo Cervetto
Lenin and the Chinese Revolution

This work includes a Leninist re-reading of one of the highest points of the struggle and the political experience of the modern revolutionary class: the October Revolution and the attempt to build the strategy-party on a world scale. Arrigo Cervetto follows Lenin’s thinking – contained in a number of his articles, reproduced in the Appendix – on the importance of the movement that in the China of 1912 established the democratic republic. Going beyond the defeat of the October Revolution, Lenin’s predictions on the consequences of Asia’s development were to remain the corner-stone of subsequent cycles of the class struggle. It is more important than ever to turn to these texts today, when global development is dominated by the irruption of Asia onto the world scene.
