War Communism to NEP: The Road From Serfdom

The Journal of Libertarian Studies

In March 1921, V. I. Lenin, ruler of revolutionary Russia, stood before the Tenth Congress of the Bolshevik Party and dramatically admitted that something had gone awry with the Revolution. The new policy he unveiled that day admitted not only that the Bolsheviks had failed to ignite a world- wide socialist takeover, but that the revolution they did ignite had brought Russia to the "very edge of the abyss."
