Nikolai Bukharin was a pioneer and founder member of Soviet Communism. An Old Bolshevik and a close comrade of Lenin, he was shot by Stalin, but eventually reinstated, posthumously, under Gorbachev. This collection of essays by an international range of scholars is the first systematic study of his ideas. The book analyses three major areas of his thought: economics and the peasantry, politics and international relations, and culture and science, and examines his influence both on his contemporaries and on subsequent thinkers. Anthony Kemp-Welch's extensive introduction establishes the context for this discussion, and also provides a historical evaluation of Bukharin's role in relation to the emergence of Stalinism, the phenomenon that finally removed him from the political stage. Bukharin's intellectual legacy is only now beginning to be appreciated fully and this book will be an important resource for anyone wanting a more thorough analysis of his intellectual contribution. Contributors: Anna di Biagio, John Biggart, V. P. Danilov, Peter Ferdinand, Neil Harding, A. Kemp-Welch, Robert Lewis, and Alec Nove.

Industry Reviews

`This volume, which focuses on Bukharin's thinking of the 1920s, would have provided the architects of `renewed socialism' with much food for thought and much to worry about ... Fine essays by Anthony Kemp-Welch place Bukharin's thinking in historical context. ' Political Studies `this volume has been very well edited ... I recommend it as an excellent introduction to Bukharin's ideas, particularly of the post-1917 period. ' Ian D. Thatcher, Irish Slavonic Studies
