Transcript A PUBLISHERS' FOREWORD. We gladly reproduce this little work of Lenin's.as a valuable contribution to the literature of International Socialism, especially since discussion upon the causes which led to " the collapse of the second international " have taken place, particularly amongst the " extreme- ists," ever since the war broke out and drove the various Socialist parties back to the confines of their national boundaries. Such a work as the following, coming as it does from the representative head of the proletarian dictatorship, which is extending its grip over Europe, will prove not only interesting because of the personality of the writer, but will provoke discussion upon the tactics as presently pursued by the various sections of International Socialism. It will also aid considerably towards an understanding as to why the second international collapsed. Undoubtedly, the marvellous capacity of our Russian comrades, not only to maintain their social revolution at home, but to extend it in spite of the tremendous forces of bourgeois reaction and intrigue, will go down in history as one of the world's achievements. That men and women going through the stress and strain of such a herculean task of social revolution should find time, besides attending to the actual machinery of administration, to make provision for the minutest detail in social life, will assuredly command the admiration and respect of all Socialists whether of the " Right" or " Left," and prove a source of inspiration to International Socialism generally.
