Selected Works of M.N. Roy (Volume III): 1927-1932

Sibnarayan Ray (Author)
Synopsis M.N. Roy was an outstanding intellectual-activist of the first half of the twentieth century.  He had few peers in the diversity and richness of his revolutionary experience.  He took an active and leading part in revolutionary movements in India, Mexico, the Soviet Union, and China.  Roy was a political contemporary and colleague of stalwarts like Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Bukharin, Zinoviev, and Borodin.  The vicissitudes of Roy's life were indeed extraordinary.  At the same time, he was a penetrating and prolific writer, whose works run to over a hundred times.  His writings are indicative of his extraordinary analytical ability and the transcontinental sweep of his vision.  Volume III of the Selected Works presents a selection of his principal writings between 1927 and 1932.  Very large sections of this volume were previously inaccessible since they had not been written in English nor published or included in any book.  Roy's contributions to Das Valksrecht, Gegen den Strom, Arbeiter Politik and INKOPP, and his polemical pamphlet 'Die International Verbundeten' were found in archives in Europe, and they have been translated for the first time from German to English for this volume.  Other rare material includes the 'Assembly Letter', Roy's 'Draft Resolution on the Indian Question' prepared for the Sixth Congress, the document 'On the Indian Question in the Sixth Congress', 'My Crime', 'The Lessons of the Lahore Congress', 'My Defence' and selections from The Masses, Inprecor, Revolutionary Age, and Independent India (1931).
