M.N. Roy: A Political Biography

Front Cover
Orient Longman, Jan 1, 1997 - Communists - 143 pages
This book traces the life of M N Roy from his early years, to the Russian Revolution of 1917 which deeply drew him to Marxism and led him to found the first Communist Party outside Russia in Mexico in 1919. It takes us through his deep involvement with Marxism, and his subsequent disillusionment with Lenin and the autocratic nationalist and colonial aspects of Marxist thought, to his belief in democracy and commitment to a scientific, humanist and moral kind of socialist thought.
