ONLINE CONFERENCE ON MULTIDISCIPLINARY SOCIAL SCIENCES

29-31 March 2013

Australian International Cultural and Educational Institute: www.auaicei.com

Online conference is an innovative conference organisational form which has brought a series of revolutionary changes to the traditional conference. Traditional conference requires participants to travel and stay in a particular place. It is a time-consuming and costly process. Online conference uses the Internet as a conference “venue” in which participants can access the conference from anywhere at any time. You won’t miss any presentations you are interested and have adequate time to share your insights with other delegates.

AICEI aims to build a platform allowing scholars, researchers, and professionals who are interested in sharing their studies from various perspectives in the aspects of social sciences, including: Culture, Education, Communication, Library & Information Studies, Psychology, Health Studies, Society and so forth. All theoretical, empirical, and practical papers in the above fields (but not strictly limited) are all highly welcomed.

Please refer to the website: www.auaicei.com for more detailed information.

Your paper may be published on:

* Conference Proceedings (refereed and non-refereed);

* International Journal of Multidisciplinary Social Sciences (with articles from selected refereed papers);

* Book chapters (with articles from selected refereed papers).

Yours faithfully,

AICEI Committee

Russian Revolution

THE OCTOBER REVOLUTION IN PROSPECT AND RETROSPECT

A new book in the Historical Materialism Book Series

http://www.brill.nl/october-revolution-prospect-and-retrospect

The October Revolution in Prospect and Retrospect: Interventions in Russian and Soviet History
John Eric Marot, Keimyung University, Korea

In a series of probing analytical essays, John Marot tracks the development of Bolshevism through the prism of pre-1917 intra-Russian Social Democratic controversies in politics and philosophy. For 1917, the author presents a critique of social historical interpretation of the Russian Revolution.

Turning to NEP Russia, the author applies Robert Brenner’s analysis of pre-capitalist modes of production and concludes that neither Bukharin nor Trotsky’s NEP-premised programs of economic transformation and advance toward socialism were feasible. At the same time, he rejects the view thatStalinism was pre-destined to supplant NEP. Instead, he hypothesises that the superior alternative to Stalinism was NEP without collectivization and the Five-Year Plans – a outcome that would have been possible had Bukharin and Trotsky joined forces to stop Stalin.

Biographical note
John Eric Marot, Ph.D. (1987), University of California, Los Angeles, teaches History at Keimyung University in Korea. He has published many articles on Russian and Soviet History, notably ‘Class Conflict, Political Competition, and Social Transformation: Critical Perspectives on the Social History of the Russian Revolution’ (Revolutionary Russia, 1994) and ‘Trotsky, the Left Opposition, and the Rise of the Stalinism: Theory and Practice’ (Historical Materialism, 2006).

Readership
This work will appeal to those interested in the fate of the October Revolution.
