NOTES

  [159] This, evidently, is a reference to the Paris Commune as a supremely flexible political system in Marx's The Civil War in France

page 537

(see Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, Selected Works in 2 Volumes, Vol. I, pp. 473-90) and the high appraisal of the "flexibility of the Parisians" given by Marx in a letter to L. Klugelman on April 12, 1871 (see Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, Selected Works in 2 Volumes, Vol. II, pp. 463-64)    [p.476]

  [160] Lenin has in mind the following excerpt from a letter from Marx to Engels on April 16, 1856: "The whole thing in Germany will depend on the possibility of backing the proletarian revolution by some second edition of the Peasant War. Then the affair will be splendid" (see marx and Engels, Selected Correspondance, p. 92)    [p.476]
