Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights the revolutionary potential of the Slavic peoples of Russian Marxists. Russian Marxists had struggled for two decades against the heritage of the Narodniks and their commitment to revolutionary terrorism. For the advocates of permanent revolution, one thing was clear: the liberal bourgeoisie in Russia was a still-born political force and the revolution, even if it were 'bourgeois' in nature, would be accomplished mainly by the proletariat. Karl Kautsky's gravitas and undisputed authority lent unexpected support to a conception of Russian history that simultaneously confounded Plekhanov's view of 'orthodoxy' and breathed new spirit into Russian Social Democracy.

Keywords: Bolshevik Revolution; bourgeois; orthodoxy; Russian Marxists; Slavic people; social democracy
