Socialist strategy and the Third Comintern Congress

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is revolutionary strategy? What is the strategic legacy for today of the Communist International in Lenin’s time? Why did Trotsky describe the Third Comintern Congress (1921) as a “school of revolutionary strategy”? John Riddell and Mike Taber discuss these questions, drawing from their work in editing and publishing the proceedings of the first four Comintern congresses.

Recommended Books Available in the Haymarket Room:
Toward the United Front: Proceedings of the Fourth Congress of the Communist International, 1922 edited by John Riddell
