Sbornik Sotsial-Demokrata

Sbornik “Sotsial-Demokrata”


(Collection of Sotsial-Demokrat), a Bolshevik journal published in Geneva on Lenin’s initiative by the editors of Sotsial-Demokrat (Social Democrat), the central organ of the RSDLP. Two issues came out, one in October 1916 and the other in December. They included the following works by Lenin: “The Discussion on Self-determination Summed Up,” “The Janius Pamphlet,” “The Socialist Revolution and the Right of Nations to Self-determination: Theses,” “The ‘Disarmament’ Slogan,” “Imperialism and the Split in Socialism,” “The Youth International,” “Efforts to Whitewash Opportunism,” and “The Chkheidze Faction and Its Role.” Material was prepared for a third issue, which was to include Lenin’s article “A Caricature of Marxism and Imperialist Economism,” but owing to lack of funds, the issue did not appear.
