Nikolai Ivanovich Bukharin (9 October 1888 - 15 March 1938) was a Russian Marxist and Old Bolshevik. Bukharin made significant contributions to Marxist theory as well as writing, with Evgeni Preobrazhensky, the ABC of Communism - a work intended to explain the fundamentals of Marxist thought to the growing ranks of the Russian Community Party. A major theorist, his works included a study of imperialism, an exposition of historical materialism and a critique of Austrian economics.
