Summary of the Book 'A Replete Bourgeoisie and a Craving Bourgeoisie':

As stated in his Imperialism the Highest Stage of Capitalism Lenins revolutionary project embraced not just Russia but the world. To implement world revolution the Third or Communist International was convened in Russia in 1919 to replace the discredited Second International. Lenin dominated the first second (1920) and third (1921) Congresses of the International and hoped to use the organisation as an agency of international socialist revolution. After the failure of revolutionary ambitions in Poland in the PolishSoviet War of 191921 and after various revolutions in Germany and Eastern Europe in 1919 had been crushed Lenin increasingly saw that that anti-colonial struggles in the Third World would be the foci of the revolutionary struggle. In 1923 Lenin said: The outcome of the struggle will be determined by the fact that Russia India China etc. account for the overwhelming majority of the population of the globe. And during the last few years it is this majority that has been drawn into the struggle for emancipation with extraordinary rapidity so that in this respect there cannot be the slightest doubt what the final outcome of the world struggle will be. In this sense the complete victory of socialism is fully and absolutely assured. Lenin praised Chinese socialist revolutionary leader Dr. Sun Yatsen and his Kuomintang party for their ideology and principles. Lenin praised Dr. Sun his attempts on social reformation and congratulated him for fighting foreign Imperialism. Dr. Sun also returned the praise calling him a great man and sent his congratulations on the revolution in Russia. The Kuomintang was a nationalist revolutionary party which had been supported by the Soviet Union. It was organised on Leninism.
