 Written in February and the first half of March 1902, the article, “The Agrarian Programme of Russian Social-Democracy,” which V. I. Lenin called a commentary to the agrarian section of the R.S.D.L.P.’s draft programme, was published in Zarya, No. 4, in August 1902. When the article was discussed by the Iskra Editorial Board, serious differences of opinion arose: G. V. Plekhanov, P. B. Axelrod and other members of the board opposed certain of its most important propositions (e. g., on land nationalisation, etc.). A number of passages, including those dealing with land nationalisation, were omitted when this article was published in Zarya.
The article in the present edition of V. I. Lenin’s Collected Works is published according to the original manuscript.
