At the end of his life, Lenin wrote 'we didn't know everything', acknowledging the dilemmas he faced on the road to revolution in 1917 and beyond.
In The Dilemmas of Lenin, Tariq Ali explores Lenin’s political life - the decisions he made and the actions that he took - to reveal an insightful portrait of the Russian Revolution’s leader arguing that Lenin’s search for answers in that situation might be relevant to today’s social and political contexts.
Ali argues that no modern thinker other than Lenin has better understood the need to change the world. But do Lenin's ideas, as expressed in his actions and his political writings, still have any significance for us?
Join Tariq Ali for this fascinating discussion to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution and to celebrate the launch of his new book.
