Lenin's analysis on the development of the imperialist world system; the character of the 1st World War, the emergence of a revolutionary world crisis at the end of the 1st World War and the analysis of the uneven development of the imperialist countries and the ingenious cognition about the Russian revolution as one of the weakest links in the chain of the imperialist countries.
