About the book:
This book is a collection of articles that connect two great world revolutionary movements, the Russian Revolution and the Indian anti-colonial struggle. The articles are written by veteran leaders of Communist Party of India and published at different times in New Age, the central organ of the party (except for the articles of Lenin, M. N. Roy and Prabhat Patnaik).
The articles reflect the thinking and practice of the leadership, how it was influenced by the ideas of the Russian Revolution and how it adapted to local conditions in its struggle against British rule in India.

Sadasiva, Nandita Chaturvedi, Vivek Sharma, Sourav Banerjee, Dr. Koninika Ray, Kritika and Anuja Rajan. Ashutosh Singh Rajput helped design the covers.
