Plekhanov renewed his struggle against Narodism, pointing out flaws in revolutionary appeals to the Russian peasantry alone, and flaws in the tactics of terrorism, being the opposite of mass action; a requirment for Socialist revolution.
Plekhanov theoretical position was that Russia's proletariat should be sent to the battlefields against the Russian autocracy, and after having overthrown it, they should work to establish a bourgeois government.
Plekhanov supported the World War, while millions of Russian's were dying and refusing to fight, up until the Soviet government signed the treaty of Brest-Litovsk, which horrified Plekhanov.

Plekhanov was known as the "Father of Russian Marxism." He founded the first Marxist organization in Russia and dominated the Russian Marxist movement for some twenty years.
Plekhanov coined the term "dialectic materialism" in 1891 in an essay on Hegel.2 He became alienated from Lenin and the Bolsheviks because they insisted that, contrary to orthodox Marxist theory, a socialist-communist revolution was possible in Russia without first passing through an intermittent "second stage" of capitalist industrialization.
Plekhanov's "comfort" in the face of death was stated in terms of reincarnation reminiscent of Buddhism or Hinduism, branches of pantheist idealist monism.

Georgi Plekhanov - founder of Marxism in Russia and later the foremost Menshevik thinker - had written and spoken of the dictatorship of the proletariat ever since he made the transition from Narodism to Marxism.
Warming to his theme, Plekhanov told delegates that if on a wave of revolutionary enthusiasm the people elected a good parliament then the party would try and ensure that this proved to be a long parliament.

 A major discovery of Aboriginal cave paintings in Australia
As the Russian Marxist Georgi Plekhanov explained at the end of the nineteenth century, the art and belief structure of Australian Aborigines can only be understood as a product of their hunter-gatherer existence.
Plekhanov’s materialist analysis, which explains the intimate and inseparable relationship between the artist and the hunter, indicates why many art experts and anthropologists have been astonished by the skilful precision, refinement of technique, realism and aesthetic beauty of some of the oldest cave paintings in the world.
The article, which is cited in Plekhanov’s letters on primitive art, provides a detailed record of the then known rock art sites in New South Wales and descriptions of the paintings and carvings were produced.

 [A-List] Sidney Hook's *Towards the Understanding of Karl Marx: A Revolutionary Interpretation*   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Against Kautsky and Plekhanov, both of whom, Hook interpreted as having vulgarized Marxism into a mechanistic, fatalistic ideology, Hook advanced the notion of praxis.
Hook read Kautsky and Plekhanov as having misinterpreted Marx as having taught that the triumph of communism over capitalism to be inevitable.
Given Sidney Hook's later notorious anticommunism, it is interesting to note that in *Towards the Understanding of Karl Marx* he took a very pro-Lenin, indeed, pro-Leninist stance, and like Lukacs and Korsch before him, maintained that he was advancing a conception of praxis that was consistent with Lenin's.
