{1} In his article, “Strike Statistics in Russia”, Lenin used the official data collected by V. Y. Varzar. Lenin set about analysing the statistical data towards the end of September 1910 (see his rough notebook on “Strike Statistics in Russia”, Lenin Miscellany XXV, pp. 129–55). On the basis of the collected data, Lenin intended to write an outline of the history of the Russian revolution. He expected the outline to form a book of about 300 pages, which he wanted to have translated afterwards into German. The article “Strike Statistics in Russia” was, in Lenin’s words, “a first approach to the Subject”, “the preliminary results of an attempt at making a more detailed analysis”. Lenin reserved publication, of a full account of the results “for another occasion”, but he did not manage to write a work of the size he intended.
