Dear friends, 

My article "Nationality's role in social liberation: the Soviet legacy" drew
four comments, each of which raises an important issue. They take up (1)
Soviet attitudes to Sharia-based customary law; (2) the consistency of
Lenin's thought; (3) the role of the Jewish Bund; and (4) the results of
Soviet rule in Armenia. 

I have posted the comments, plus a few remarks of my own, to my website. See

The next instalment will examine alternative texts of the Communist
International's call for workers' governments.
