Bertrand Arthur William Russell was a (1872-1970) Nobel Laureate, Philosopher, Social and political critic, mathematician, voluminous writer of England. He was a teacher for Social Democracy at LSE. During his official visit to Soviet Union, he met Lenin . He had his correspondence with Nehru and Chou of China. He was a friend of V K Krishna Menon. Russel- Einstein manifesto for Nuclear Disarmament was issued during 1955. He associated with Sartre also.
This book of Russel PROPOSED ROADS TO FREEDOM during 1918 is really a brilliant analysis of the dominant currents viz Marxism of Marx, Anarchism of Bakunin- Kropotkin and Syndicalism- Guild socialism . After analyzing fairly the works of the great masters, Russell arrived closer to Guild socialists ( quoting G D H Cole) with a slight bend towards Anarchists. The Price of the Hard cover of this book is more than 25 dollars, even the paperback is 10 dollars. I have given the full text of that book in Word Document in 144 pages (A 4) in my Face Book. I have highlighted the portions where I found good arguments, underlined the portions with highlights where the arguments getting stronger. Next Year 2017 is marking the centenary of Soviet Revolution ( Indira Gandhi's Centenary also). 2018 will mark the 100th year Russel's Book- Proposed Roads to Freedom
