On April 22, we celebrate V. I. Lenin’s 150th birth anniversary. Lenin was the chief theorist of the October Revolution of 1917, and one of the most important leaders of the new Soviet Republic and then the USSR. Three left presses – LeftWord Books (India), Expressão Popular (Brazil), and Batalla de Ideas (Argentina) – in collaboration with Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research have produced a joint commemorative book called Lenin 150. This volume collects Lenin’s 1913 essay on ‘The Three Sources and Three Component Parts of Marxism’, Vladimir Mayakovsky’s epic poem written at Lenin’s death (1924), and a brief essay by Vijay Prashad on the theory and praxis of Lenin.
