  Nikolai Bukharin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bukharin led the opposition of the Left Communists to the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, arguing instead for the Bolsheviks to continue the war effort and turn it into a world-wide push for proletarian revolution.
After 1926, Bukharin, by then regarded as the leader of the Communist Party's right wing, became an ally of the center of the party, which was led by Stalin and which constituted the ruling group after Stalin broke his earlier alliance with Kamenev and Zinoviev.
Bukharin was rehabilitated by Stalin and was made editor of Izvestia in 1934, but was arrested again in 1937 for conspiring to overthrow the Soviet state.

 Bukharin
Nikolai Ivanovitch Bukharin was born in Moscow on September 27, 1888 (October 9 in the Gregorian Calendar), the second son of Ivan Gavrilovich and Liubov Ivavnovna Bukharin.
Bukharin says that the world economy is a unit which imposes its own dynamic on its parts so that "we may define world economy as a system of production relations." The roots of this world economy lie in the expansive nature of capital itself.
Bukharin became identified with the interests of the peasants, closely following Lenin's advice for the party to "move cautiously and slowly in pace with the peasants' understanding and acceptance of the state's policies." (Lewin, 13) Bukharin built his economic platform around the concept of socialism as a system of "civilized cooperators".

 Bukharin Intro to Philosophical Arabesques by Helena Sheehan
Bukharin was editor of Izvestiya and member of the USSR Academy of Sciences (and head of its commission on the history of knowledge) and still active in many sectors of soviet life, from the arts and sciences to economic planning.
Bukharin began his treatise in a sweeping world historical style, characterising the epoch with exuberant energy as a time of titantic struggle between an old order dying and a new order being born, a time of revaluation of all values.
Bukharin was fortunate to have attracted a biographer of the stature and persistence of Stephen Cohen.

 Swans Commentary: Nikolai Bukharin's "Philosophical Arabesques," by Louis Proyect - lproy33
Although Bukharin has emerged from the shadows in recent years as a result of Stephen Cohen's definitive biography and the efforts of reform elements in the USSR to resuscitate a kind of Marxism consistent with their own market-oriented experiments, a word or two of introduction might be in order.
Bukharin's arguments were like a bracing glass of cold water thrown in the face of a dying culture, as Christopher Caudwell, a casualty of the Spanish Civil War, would put it.
Bukharin saw fascist ideology as an outgrowth of idealist mysticism, which introduced "greater and greater does of inborn and unchanging mystical virtues to their warrior-gangster conception replacing the chemical composition of the blood with the 'voice of the blood...'"

 Nikolai Bukharin on the Use of Individual Terror Against Stalin
What is remarkable about Jules Humbert-Droz’s last conversation with Bukharin held in early 1929, in which Bukharin indicates that his opposition group had taken the decision to utilize individual terror against Stalin, is that it emanates from a source which is sympathetic to Bukharin.
We are informed by Stephen Cohen in his favourable biography of Bukharin that Jules Humbert-Droz was one of the few Comintern leaders who remained loyal to Bukharin after the Sixth Congress of Comintern in 1928.
Bukharin doubtlessly had understood that I would not liase blindly with his fraction whose sole programme was to make Stalin disappear.

 Maoist book reviews: Anna Larina, Nikolai Bukharin's widow
Bukharin continued to hold that the NEP should be continued and peasants should collectivize agriculture only on a voluntary basis.
While the substance of Bukharinism is the advocacy of a permanent NEP for dealing with pre-capitalist modes of production, the substance of Anna Larina's memoirs is her lifelong struggle to stand by her husband and his ideas.
Bukharin himself had the problem of not being able to sort out personal trivialities from what is politically important, despite his large commitment of energy to the revolutionary profession.

Nikolai Bukharin, colleague and pupil of Lenin, editor of Isvestia, head of the Communist International and distinguished Marxist scholar, was shot after he had been compelled to confess to conspiring with Trotsky and others to bring about the downfall of the Revolution in which he had been so colorful a figure.

 Swans Commentary: Nikolai Bukharin, "How it All Began," by Louis Proyect - lproy01
Bukharin's portrait of himself as a child is really the core of the book.
Although Bukharin tried to make sure that his manuscripts would not be interpreted as a challenge to Stalin, who could (and did) wreak vengeance against his family, there is little doubt that the contempt directed toward the chinovniks implied criticism of the bureaucratized socialist state as well.
Alongside Bukharin's vivid recollections of his family and the society they interacted with at all levels, there is an almost constant engagement with nature.

This dissertation examines the claims that Nikolai Bukharin was an inconsistent Marxist theoretician, at times “un-Marxist” in his thinking who radically altered his political philosophy to justify his support for such different policies as War Communism and the New Economic Policy.
Finally, it subjects Bukharin’s major theoretical works on imperialism, revolution and the role of the state in the transition to socialism, between 1915-1925, to an in-depth analysis to determine the validity of the claims made about Bukharin and his works.
While one can still argue that Bukharin may have acted differently from Stalin once in power, this dissertation demonstrates that Bukharin was consistent in his theoretical work on the revolution and the transition to socialism.

 prison novel
An autobiographical novel, it traces the development of Nikolai "Kolya" Petrov (the central character and alter ego of Bukharin) from his early childhood to age 15 and in course delves into the abysmal depths of Nikolai's growing political consciousness.
Considering the strict vigilance, Bukharin might have had resorted to vague, obscure titles to confuse and mislead the prison authoritites.
As to the fifth manuscript, the unfinished autobiographical novel, Bukharin started working on it on November 12, 1937 and continued working till March 1938, till the time he was shot dead on March 15, 1938.

Bukharin’s Philosophical Arabesques was written while he was imprisoned in the Lubyanka Prison in Moscow, facing a trial on charges of treason and the likelihood of execution.

 Bukharin
These days the newspaper with the hallowed name Pravda prints the most contemptible lie that I, Nikolai Bukharin, wanted to destroy the achievement of October, to restore capitalism.
This is a lie that in its obscenity and irresponsibility towards the people could be matched only by the story that Nikolai Romanov devoted his entire life to the struggle against capitalism and the monarchy, to the struggle for the realisation of the proletarian revolution.
Studies on Bukharin include Stephen F. Cohen, Bukharin and the Bolshevik Revolution (Oxford, 1980) and Kenneth J. Tarbuck, Bukharin's Theory of Equilibrium (Pluto, 1989), while his trial is dealt with in George Katkov, The Trial of Bukharin (Batsford, 1969) and Ken Coates, The Case of Nikolai Bukharin (Spokesman, 1978).
