 Written in 1915. In early 1916, Lenin, while in Berne, sent the manuscript to Maxim Gorky for the Parus Publishers, but it did not appear at that time. It was published in Petrograd in 1917 by Zhisn i Znaniye. The material for the book–variants of the plan and statistical extracts from the U.S. Census reports for 1900 and 1910–was published in Lenin Miscellany XIX in 1932. Lenin did not realize his intention of writing the second part of the book, which was to have dealt with Germany.
