MIA : Comintern Writers : Bukharin

“Bukharin is not only a most valuableĀ“and major theorist of the Party; he is also rightly considered the favourite of the whole Party, but his theoretical views can be classified as fully Marxist only with great reserve, for there is something scholastic about him (he has never made a study of the dialectics, and, I think, never fully understood it).” V.I.
