THE COLLECTED WORKS OF
J.V. STALIN: VOLUME 1
Edited & Introduced by Iskra Books
Iskra Books has chosen to publish the full series of the Collected Works due to an academic scarcity of the materials, an increasing inaccessibility of used copies of the original Foreign Languages Publishing House editions, and a growing scholarly and revolutionary interest in the writings and ideas of one of the Twentieth Century’s most impactful socialist heads of state.
Despite their often-negative reputation in the capitalist world, Stalin’s Works are both accessible and important, and deserve to be studied as not only as world-historical and practical applications of the development of Marxist-Leninist political theory, but—especially in an era where the rise of imperialism and the decay of capitalism lead to an increasing global fascism—also as political-theoretical texts in their own right; as the core theoretical works underpinning extant socialist state governance, policy, legislation, and practice.
