    This is one of the best Marxist theory books I’ve ever read Stalin explains the national uestion so well and writes this polemic against his then political opponents so well that I was able to easily understand the issues of the time and the national uestion I take away from this the ability to understand what a nation is as well as what discontents minorities as well as a plethora of other information such as how to solve the national uestion This book is packed full of information A great read everyone should embark on

    This is widely considered to be Stalin's main contribution to the canon of Marxist theoretical literature so important reading from a historical perspective The opening sections on how a nation can be conceived of and defined are coherent and illuminating even todayLike many historical political tracts much space is taken up with refutations of contemporary theorists which which will be so much arcana to the modern reader although the grappling with the demands of the Bund for national cultural autonomy is an interesting precursor to later positions that would be adopted by the communist movement in relation to zionism

    Interesting insight Not uite how he ultimately treated the National uestion when he became dictator

    Stalin’s work in the national uestion is very easy to read Personally I’d recommend reading volume one of his works before going into this one I personally find those interesting and that they help the reader understand this one

    A fascinating if dry look into the rapidly evolving world of the early twentieth century The discussion of defining what nationality is and the problematic pairing of nationalism with socialism are explored exhaustively

    Only useful for the short critiue of Bauer maybe some historical perspective re what guided Stalin's policies Nothing particularly compelling or useful on its own right

    Too many refutations not enough solutions nor anything that is better than what is criticized

    The star rating given reflects my opinion within ‘the official goodreads rating system’1 star Didn’t Like it2 stars It’s Okay3 stars Liked it4 stars Really Liked it5 stars It Was AmazingI don’t really give a rat fuck that there are some who think I ‘owe’ an explanation for my opinion Nope nada and not sorry about itSometimes I may add notes to explain what my opinions are based on and sometimes I don’t I do this for me on my books in my library and I don’t ‘owe’ any special snowflakes a thing Fuck off if you don’t like it and stop reading my shitParticularly given the ‘modifications’ to reader’s personal content going on and outright censorship unless particularly motivated I will not comment in detail It would help if GR was forthcoming in the new ‘appropriate’ and would make a site wide announcement delineating the new focus from a reader centric site to one that is now for authors and selling

    Went back to this upon reading Cedric Robinson's comments in his Black Marxism It is amazing that this piece of hack work has any standing at all Its history is pretend Anyone wanting to place this in context should look at the history of Ukraine Tajikistan Chechnya and the other non Russian Soviet nations
