RKOB says:

(I mention, in
passing, that GLW published an article yesterday which argues that
Russia, contrary to the view outlined in my book, is not an imperialist
power.)

I think he is referring to the following article in Links (not Green Left Weekly):

http://links.org.au/is-russia-imperialist

Links aims to promote discussion on the left, and publishes articles with diverse views.  Here is an article I wrote a few years ago:

Are Russia and China imperialist powers?

I hope comrades will apologize that I use this place to briefly
advertise a new book (“/Anti-Imperialism in the Age of Great Power
Rivalry/”) which I have written. (See the email before)

I will not outline the content here as you can find a detailed content
at the link which was provided in the previous email
(https://www.thecommunists.net/theory/anti-imperialism-in-the-age-of-great-power-rivalry/).
Likewise it is not necessary to explain why the subject of the book -
the rivalry between the Great Powers - is important.

I just want to draw your attention to a few specific issues which, in my
opinion, make the book interesting even for those who do not agree with
my point of view.

First, the book provides a number of statistics and arguments (as well
as historical analogies) which are crucial for the debate of the
question if China and Russia are imperialist powers. (I mention, in
passing, that GLW published an article yesterday which argues that
Russia, contrary to the view outlined in my book, is not an imperialist
power.)

Secondly, the book critically discusses in detail the analysis and
perspectives by a number of left-wing parties and groups in West and
East (left social democrats, Stalinists, Trotskyists and others).

This analysis covers extensively, among others, forces which are usually
not or only little known in the West (for example the Japanese
Communists Party as well as a number of Russian Stalinist and
non-Stalinist forces).

Thirdly, the book has profited from the help of a Russian comrade who
translated material which exists only in Russian language and which has
been used extensively in this book. This translation work helped in a
critical analysis of the social-imperialist policy of the KPRF, the
RKPR, the OKP, Boris Kagarlitsky, Alexander Buzgalin, Ruslan Dzarasov
and others.

Of course, critical readers are welcome to send their comments or to
write a review.

I hope you enjoy reading the book!
