Transcript TO THE READER The present edition of Foundations of Leninism is published in 100,000 copies—a bold step, but justified by the rapidly growing interest in the literature of Marxism and Leninism. Its publication is occasioned by two anniversaries. The first is of the book itself. It is the outcome of a series of lectures delivered by Joseph Stalin in 1924 before the students of Sverdlov University in Moscow, shortly after the death of Lenin. A brilliant, systematic exposition of the teachings of Lenin, this book ranks with the outstanding classics of Marxism. It has been translated into 26 languages and issued in the Russian language alone in nearly 10 million copies. This year also marks the completion of ten years' publishing activity of International Publishers. The tasks which we have set ourselves are by far not accomplished as yet. But numerous works which perhaps otherwise would not have seen the light of day have been made available. These are contained in our growing list of the writings of Marx and Engels, the works of Lenin and Stalin and other foremost Marxists in new and scientific editions; of books dealing with the problems and experiences of the labor movement in the United States; of authoritative books on the Soviet Union; proletarian fiction and numerous pamphlets covering the manifold problems of our time. You can help us increase and broaden our publishing activities. We feel that the publication and distribution of 100,000 copies of the present booklet is only an indication of what can be done. As great or even greater distribution of similar works can be achieved. Additional books are needed. Larger editions of each title will make possible cheaper books and pamphlets. For example, Foundations previously sold at 40 cents but now, because of the very large edition, it can be sold at 10 cents. Wider distribution will assure even a greater publishing program devoted to the kind of literature which we have been issuing during the past ten years and which has come to play an important role in the life of an increasing number of people. We take this occasion to ask you to write us your opinion of our publications and to send us your suggestions as to our publishing program for the future. Your opinion and, we hope, your enthusiastic endorsement of the propositions listed on the next page will also be greatly valued by us. International Publishers. (Over)
