Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights how the author had helped to initiate the Russian debate over permanent revolution with his article on 'The Slavs and Revolution', and his simultaneous reference to theCommunist Manifesto and the 'Address to the Central Committee of the Communist League' - without pointing out clearly the change of tactics that intervened between them - served better to echo and even amplify divisions among Russian Marxists than to assist in resolving their differences. Almost sixty years have passed since the Communist Manifesto which was written, sixty years of a mode of production that consists, more than any preceding one, of a constant overturning of the old and a continual hurrying and hunting after the new.

Keywords: Communist Manifesto; Russian marxists; Russian revolution
