New Left Review I/96, March-April 1976

Michael Löwy

Marxists and the National Question

The aim of this article is to isolate certain key theoretical and methodological aspects of the classic Marxist debate on the national question: a debate which had its starting-point in the relatively imprecise positions developed by Marx and Engels themselves in their writings, and which was carried on vigorously in the Second International before the First World War, culminating in Lenin’s formulation of a realistic revolutionary theory of the right of nations to self-determination.
