radha d’souza on self-determination, imperialism and marxism re: lenin


Radha D’Souza, ‘Imperialism and Self-determination: Revisiting the Nexus in Lenin’, Economic & Political Weekly vol xlvIiI no 15 (2013).

This essay examines the nexus between self-determination, imperialism and the importance of Marxist theory in Lenin’s writings. It argues that the three strands were inseparably connected in Lenin’s thinking. The breakdown of the unity of the three strands of thought has impeded our understanding of contemporary imperialism.
