Marxism and the National Question
"Marxism and the National Question" (Russian:Марксизм и национальный вопрос) is an article written by Joseph Stalin at the end of 1912–1913 in Vienna, at the insistence of Lenin. Originally published as "The National Question and Social-Democracy", the article constitutes Stalin's expression of the Bolsheviks' views on the solutions of the national question, and criticized the program of cultural-national autonomy of the Austro-Hungarian socialists. It was considered sufficiently impressive to warrant issuing as a booklet, and became popular among Russian Marxists. Stalin would thenceforth be considered an expert on national issues. Marxism and the National Question later provided the basic framework for nationality policy in the Soviet Union.
