Abstract

This essay examines the nexus between self-determination, imperialism and the importance of Marxist theory in Lenin’s writings. It argues that the three strands were inseparably connected in Lenin’s thinking. The breakdown of the unity of the three strands of thought has impeded our understanding of contemporary imperialism.

Keywords: imperialism, Marxism, law, politics, self-determination, world wars, post-war order
