Michael Parenti.DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: After reading your powerful and very strong book about imperialism, “The Face of Imperialism”, we feel the need to read again Lenin’s “Imperialism the Highest Stage of Capitalism“, because your book brings added value. What do you think?

Michael Parenti: It is generous of you to claim that my work adds value to Lenin’s.  I read his book forty years ago so I cannot claim to be drawing directly from it. But certainly we can say my book was doing some of the same things that his had done, for instance: trying to show the link between capitalism and colonial imperialism,  revealing the key role played by cartels, and how the imposing contradictions of capitalism work themselves out in brutal imperatives.
