After the Russian Revolution millions of workers across Europe rallied to its banner. Revolutionary socialism had become a mass current - a whole section of the working class turned its back on capitalism and the social-democratic leadership who sought to defend it.

Yet millions more still hoped for change through parliament, still looked to the old leaders to improve their lives. What should socialists say to them? Should they have anything to do with parliamentary elections, or with the union leaders who sold them so short?

This book gives us the answers. Lenin wrote it in 1920 as an urgent manifesto, explaining to those workers who rejected the old leaders how they could win over their not-yet-converted workmates, and in the process make their burning impatience for change a reality.
