G. M.,

I have read it, and approve very, very much.[1] Get it ready as soon as possible, dictate it.

One addition, in my opinion, is essential about the New Economic Policy. I think it would he hotter to insert it (throwing light from different points of view on the place, the significance, the role in the general framework of the New Economic Policy) in the separate chapters. Almost in every chapter you can (and should, in my belief) add a page or two about the fact that the New Economic Policy does not change the single state economic plan, and does not go beyond its framework, but alters the approach to its realisation.

Your opinion?

The book appeared in December 1921 with the addition, of which Lenin writes in this letter.
