Transcript IX. STYLE IN WORK We are not concerned here with literary style. What I have in mind is style in the work, those particular and peculiar features inherent in the practice of Leninism which give rise to the special type of the Leninist worker. Leninism is a school of theory and practice which trains a special type of worker for the Party and the state and creates a special Leninist style in work. What are the characteristic features of this style? What are its peculiar features? There are two special features: (a) the wide Russian revolutionary range of action and (b) American efficiency.
