VI Lenin – Collected Works – Volumes 6 – 10

On this, previous and subsequent pages, you will find the Collected Works of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. The intention is, eventually, to provide full contents for each volume posted. As it stands at the moment that is only available for the first ten volumes – contents for later volumes will appear gradually over a period of time.

However all of the 45 volumes of Lenin’s Collected Works will be available in pdf format to download from the start. There are two further volumes, an Index of Works and Names and another a Subject Index. Those volumes will be made available as soon as practicable.

These volumes were made available by the comrades at From Marx to Mao, to whom we give our thanks. They have other material on their website – some of which is available here but others (especially individual pamphlets of the great Marxist-Leninists) are not.

VI Lenin Collected Works: Volumes 1 – 5; Volumes 11 – 45;

Already on this site you can find the Works of JV Stalin, Mao Tse-tung and Enver Hoxha.
