    1. If you think Ultraimperialism exists, i feel bad for you son, Capitalism's got stages and imperialism's the highest one

    2. It seemed natural to read this immediately after State and Revolution, as together they create a consistent analysis of the major trends of the early 20th Century.Ultimately, I found this to be the more compelling of the two, probably due to my own preoccupations with imperialism and World War One.It is famously heavy on statistics, particularly early on, but I didn't find it overwhelming. Lenin is an accomplished enough writer to deploy numbers and tables with skill, stitching them into the fra [...]

    3. This is the second book I’ve read by Lenin. This one’s short, invective, and theoretically sweet. Could a Marxist ask for more…? In this book, Lenin is exploring the contradictions inherent in 18th century capitalism, and the resolution capitalism seeks, within its own structures, to resolve the contradiction - or, the negation of the negation – which equals Imperialism. For Lenin, the increased concentration of the means of production, by those who ‘win’ on the ‘free market’ (ev [...]

    4. I like the book, but it reminds me of a story. I used to teach talented students at Hunter college and one of them, a Russian girl, wrote a book report on this for her political science class. She sought to show how pro-American she was by criticizing all of Lenin's assumptions, and did a respectable job. Little did she know that her Marxist professors at Hunter would be horrified by her analysis. Her professor wrote in the margins to her paper: Can't you see Lenin was right!?!

    5. (For more reviews like this, please visit arabmillennial)6/10I have never read a book full of so many enigmas. It is interesting, for example, that Lenin should come from an elite family and aspire to expose capitalism and the bourgeoisie. At the same time, doing so propelled him into further international attention and advanced Lenin’s power as leader of the USSR. So perhaps this book is not as selfless as it appears to most Leninists.***Leninism vs MarxismOne of the stand out features of Imp [...]

    6. Incredible work about how capitalism made its own contradictions due to free market giving as consequence a new stage of economy: Imperialism. Lenin given us a study about how capitalism turned into a imperialism through a researches that he made of bourgeois data using a critical approaching in marxism. This book was made when World War I began and socialism yet was seeing such as new alternative of see the life. Despite of data which Lenin used and the time the book was written this work conta [...]

    7. Hauntingly accurate in its predictions of finance capital. Eerily prescient of the 2008 bank bailouts and America's overseas adventurism during the last 110+ years. Lenin does a fine job of highlighting the inherent flaws and contradictions of capitalism, and how monopolies and imperialism hurt us all, especially the peoples of abused territories. Many references to economists and historians I am unfortunately unfamiliar with, yet many cited facts and insightful accessible data via charts and gr [...]

    8. پاسخی است به آراء "رفرمیستی" کائوتسکی درباره امپریالیسملنین امپریالیسم را مرحله یا فازی از سرمایه داری می داند که در آن بازار آزاد، رفته رفته جای خود را به انحصارطلبیِ تراست ها و کارتل های بین المللی می دهد. در این مرحله، صدور سرمایه از صدور کالا پیشی می گیرد و "تقسیم جهان" به ب [...]

    9. Inside the thicket of familiar Communist polemic are some thought-provoking and still-relevant insights.In the 1990s I used to read The Globe and Mail, and one of my favorite contributors was Donald Coxe, who had a column in the business section. Coxe is an investment analyst and he manages one or more mutual funds of his own. Recently I was reading an interview with him on BullionVault, a British website devoted to buying and selling gold, and in the course of it he mentioned this book by Lenin [...]

    10. First I need to rant a little:Dear Lenin, I am against the state; I am against imperialism, militarism, colonialism, statism; I am against interventionism discrimination(positive and negative) of economic agents by the state that breeds long standing cartels and monopolies; I am for a free market, for liberty and for private property. My position can be described and falls into the category of libertarianism, a position you never thought about and you may consider absurd. But my position, althro [...]

    11. Such a painful read not because of the style of writing or because I disagree with it but because the context describes imperialism in a way that makes me rage.Although more than a century old this book can accurate describe the events that are happening around the world now and unfortunately almost all of the predictions have already taken place.My only problems with this hugely significant text were the single point of view and the lack of critique to a number of statements.

    12. Leggere ‘Imperialismo: fase suprema del capitalismo’ oggi, a 100 anni dalla Rivoluzione d’Ottobre ma soprattutto a 30 dalla caduta del Muro di Berlino e quella conseguente del socialismo reale, non è esercizio storico relegato alla situazione economico-politica del secolo scorso ma fondamentale tappa di conoscimento di un concetto – quello di imperialismo – che ha visto, nel momento del suo temporaneo trionfo pratico, la scomparsa non solo nell’opinione pubblica ma anche in quella p [...]

    13. Nehme dieses kleine Buch nach fast 30 Jahren als Nebenlektüre zur Stalin-Biografie wieder zur Hand.Wenn man die teilweise recht verschraubte Analyse auf Sowjetrussland selbst anwendet, erscheint es als das imperialistischste aller Länder, und zwar nach Lenins eigener Definition: Die Industrie ist komplett monopolisiert und mit dem Staat verschränkt, der wirtschaftliche Wettbewerb ist abgeschafft.Auch geopolitisch lässt sich Sowjetrussland entsprechend einordnen. Was Russland nach dem 1. Welt [...]

    14. An excellent discussion of imperialism and capitalism. It's short so it only provides a sketch but it highlights many points which are essential to grasp for leftists today and are often ignored (the inevitability of imperialism, uneven development, labour aristocracy etc). I'm rating it 5 because, even though it's not as developed as you might hope for various reasons and it could obviously be better, it is clear about the important details of capitalist development - it's perceptive, clear and [...]

    15. One feature of the Marxist tradition, I have always enjoyed, is that of using the arguments of opponents in one’s own case.Lenin’s essay on Imperialism is maybe the best example of this. Lenin takes the views of the early 20th century avowed imperialists who claimed that, unless the western powers engaged in foreign conquest, then capitalism would collapse. He then argues that this shows the worthlessness of both capitalism and imperialism. It’s a nice turning of the tables.(I don't need t [...]

    16. Lenin's analysis here of the problems of late 18th century and early 19th century capitalism are spot-on, and the book is surprisingly short and reader-friendly. Of course, Lenin completely fails to account for the rise of the welfare state and the drastic expansion of democracy, which ultimately undercut his dire predictions. Still, it is definitely worth reading as a look into the motivations that drove one of the 20th century's most influential (terrible, perhaps, but definitely influential) [...]

    17. There is quite a bit about Lenin that is hogwash, or at least not applicable to the current situation. This book isn't one of them. It's certainly stood the test of time, almost tragically.Folks who might have a knee-jerk anti-Lenin reaction to this should at least be able to appreciate the linkage between capital and imperialism. Of course, imperialism has can can exist in non-capitalist economies. Since there's very little in the way of non-capitalist economies these days, this book gains incr [...]

    18. It is a very good book indeed, and a very good collection from Penguin - Great Ideas.The essay itself explores what V.L. Lenin considers to be the high stage of capitalism - Imperialism. Throughout this Marxist essay, not only does Lenin tries to explore all the related definitions within the social concept of Imperialism, but also does the very good exercise of exposing some of Kautsky's weakness regarding economic criticism on Imperialism.It is a very good read!

    19. Exceso de datos y nombres anacrónicos que nos llegan a abrumar de tal manera que la lectura puede resultar un tanto farragosa. Aun así, consigue transmitir su objetivo principal: demostrarnos que el sistema capitalista lleva inherente en su propia idiosincrasia la acumulación progresiva del capital en unas pocas manos, es decir, el capitalismo lleva al imperialismo.

    20. actually lenin, i think youll find that imperialism is a form of militant government, and capitalism is an economic system. hth. signed, an undergraduate majoring in sonic the hedgehog

    21. En este ensayo, el autor trata de convencernos sobre el dominio de la economía del sistema capitalista en su última etapa, la imperialista; con un análisis marxista sobre la manera en que se llega a su auge. Diferencia un capitalismo 'viejo' con uno 'nuevo' cuando habla del primero como un intercambio de libre competencia que entró en crisis en 1873 después de su punto culminante en 1860. Habla de los orígenes del nuevo capitalismo como un supuesto difuso, ya que la formación de cartels o [...]

    22. "My feelings concerning the Communist Party of the United States are well known. I have not hesitated over the years to express my concern and apprehension. As a consequence its professional smear brigades have conducted a relentless assault against the FBI. You who have been members of this committee also know the fury with which the party, its sympathizers and fellow travelers can launch an assault. I do not mind such attacks. What has been disillusioning is the manner in which they have been [...]

    23. Here Lenin outlines the developments in capitalism from the emergence of monopolies, to the transition to financial capital enterprises (banks) that inevitably dictated the economic actions of the global markets. Constantly seeking new avenues of profits imperialism emerges as a unique form of capitalism where the financial capital holders (the leading European powers) export capital to to the developing world as a means of control and further capital accumulation. This development leads to the [...]

    24. En este ensayo publicado en 1917 (hace casi un siglo) Lenin analiza el desarrollo del capitalismo en las principales potencias mundiales desde finales del siglo XIX hasta principios del XX y como este ha desembocado en lo que se conoce como imperialismo. Debo decir que esta lectura me ha sorprendido (como ya me anunció quién me la recomendó y prestó) y me ha resultado extremadamente grata y constructiva. Tanto es así que me la he ventilado ávidamente en poco tiempo. Vladimir Ilyich empieza [...]

    25. not a fan of the style in which lenin writes tbh, lenin mainly mentions in this small book that imperialism often is interconnected with colonialism, and you simply can't oppose one without the other. take for example a country with a history of colonialism like britain, britain is more often than not going to be an imperialist nation. this book also mentions that if you're a socialist, you can't be a socialist without first opposing colonialism & imperialism. not a huge fan of lenin's work, [...]

    26. The book is now way more topical than it was a hundred years ago when it was written. Vladimir Lenin describe with simple examples the essense of uncontrollable capitalism and why it never ends good. If our world was impartial and equitable this book would be essential in every economic university and speciality as the first and basic course economic science. Unfortunately lobbists of the big bourgeoisie don't want to teach, but want to manipulate and make brainwashed puppets who would believe i [...]

    27. Lenin se vale de multitud de datos ecónomicos de finales del siglo XIX y comienzos del XX para explicar cómo el sistema capitalista, incluso en los países más propensos al librecambio como Reino Unido, ha acabado dando lugar a enormes monopolios a partir de la unión de grandes empresas, que prefieren cooperar entre ellas a competir. Estos monopolios nacionales, ayudados de la banca (cada vez más poderosa) acaban chocando entre ellos cuando buscan expandir mercados para multiplicar benefici [...]

    28. Absolutely crucial to understanding the fundamental tasks of the international revolutionary movement today. Very readable and written with Lenin's usual sharpness and flair for ridiculing revisionists and reactionaries, this lays out how this current and highest (and most rotten) stage of capitalism works. This is just personal opinion but this text supplemented with others may be just slightly more pertinent in convincing workers in imperialist countries.
