I am writing on the polemics after the 1917 revolution between Lenin and Kautsky, Trotsky and Kautsky, and Radek and Kautsky. I am trying to reveal the context of the time and throw new view on the debates between "the renegade Kautsky" and the Bolsheviks by taking into account their points of agreement prior to 1917 and August 1914.

If anyone has suggestions I'd like to hear from you.

What books have you read so far? I recommend, for background, Bertram Wolfe's THREE WHO MADE A REVOLUTION.
