 The Role of Bolshevik Ideology in the Birth of the Bureaucracy
This pamphlet was published in Moscow at the beginning of 1921, during the violent controversy that preceded the Tenth Congress of the Bolshevik party.

 How did Bolshevik ideology contribute to the failure of the Revolution?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Bolshevik ideology and practice were themselves important and sometimes decisive factors in the equation, at every critical stage of this critical period.
Little wonder that no leading Bolshevik called the end of soviet democracy and its replacement by party dictatorship as a "retreat" or even as something to be worried about (indeed, they all argued the opposite, namely that party dictatorship was essential and not an issue to be worried about).

 The Bolshevik Experiment
This implies that the Bolshevik revolution of 1917 instituted a form of workers' state in the sense that the industrial proletariat and semi-proletarian peasantry established effective forms of political direction and control of an economy that remained fundamentally capitalist, and that the revolution itself was the result of a genuine mass proletarian movement.
It will be argued that although the Bolshevik party did not actively usurp the 'dictatorship' of the proletariat, it assumed increasing authoritarianism and even totalitarian powers as the proletariat disintegrated under pressure of the civil war.
It gained considerable support within the rank and file of the Bolshevik party although this was not reflected in the number of delegates, 40 or 50, that represented it at the Tenth Party Congress in March 1921.
