Written in 1915, Imperialism and world Economy was a major contribution to the development of a Marxist-Leninist theory of imperialism. But Bukharin’s analysis is perhaps even more relevant today, because he investigated imperialism within the context of the world capitalist system. The Modern acceleration of the internationalization of capital was clearly anticipated in this study of how and why the world economy expands, becomes interconnected, and is reproduced. Equally relevant today is Bukharin’s exploration of the sources of conflict between capital of different nations despite, or because of, growing economic interdependence on a world scale.  

Nikolai Bukharin

Nikolai Ivanovich Bukharin (1888-1938) was a Soviet politician and author. While he played an important role as a Bolshevik revolutionary and was closely involved with Lenin and Trotsky during his, and their, exile, he was also an important Marxist theoretician. He was editor of the party newspaper Pravda after 1917.
