    Addicting Books

    The Trotsky Writings books are addicting. The short pithy, wise articles, interviews, polemics, the illuminating and interesting notes, and the drama of Trotsky's struggle in exile are available on a week to week, month to month, year to year basis across from 1929 until 1940. You end up reading the next article, and the next article, and you have to discipline yourself to put it down if you can. A constant feature is the continued interviews by newspapers, magazines, international press services from the US, Britain, and around the world, because even in exile, even these bourgeois forces knew that Trotsky was one man who could put together the trends in the world. As much as they teach us about history,these books teach us revolutionary answers to questions we need to answer today: how to go from small revolutionary movements to a revolution like Trotsky and Lenin led in 1917, how to fight the middle class bureaucrats in the former Soviet Union and China, how to win workers, farmers, women and oppressed women.

    Does this sound like today's world ?

    In 1930-31 the last Great Depression (as opposed to the one we just entered) gripped the capitalist world. Fascism was becoming a real and recognizable threat in Germany. Spain was in the throes of a pre-Revolutionary situation. In the Soviet Union the Stalinist (not socialist, not communist) bureaucracy was squandering the prestige of the world's first workers state (at the bottom of the Depression, the USSR was virtually free of unemployment) in one disastrous lurch in economic policy after another - the years of forced 'collectivization.' Leon Trotsky, co-leader with V.I. Lenin of the Russian Revolution, exiled by Stalin to Turkey, strove with might and main to build a worldwide revolutionary leadership of worker cadres organized in revolutionary parties. The record of his efforts is here in part. The rest of his efforts in 1930-31 are recorded 'The Struggle Against Fascism In Germany' and 'The Spanish Revolution' (BUY THEM TOO!) The relevance of this work should be clear: in a world gripped by the beginning of the Second Great world Depression marked by the collapse of Stalinism-- the opposite of communism -- a seemingly unending series of imperialist wars, and the survival of the beacon of light for the world's toilers that is the Cuban Revolution-if you are a young rebel of any age who wants to fight for a truly human world, then this book belongs on your shelf to be STUDIED.

    A revolutionist at work

    This volume in the series of Trotsky's writings actually doesn't deal with a number of the major developments in 1930 and 1931. Since they are so extensive, his writings on events in Spain and Germany are to be found in separate compilations. This book is one to buy and browse thru' simply because it helps complete the picture of Trotsky's work in that period of history, the incredible scope of his collaboration and attention -- everything from patient letters to Chinese revolutionists encouraging them to abandon flights of scholarly abstraction and get a grip, to good concrete explanations of why workers in the USSR cannot be simply cheerled to socialism. A single scathing page chastises Stalin's apparatus for the imminent death of an old Bolshevik leader hemorraging from tuberculosis and denied a transfer to better climes. The lack of respect for a lifelong fighter and cynical disregard for someone who has never bowed his head could only be practised by those who had no interest in fighting themselves. Trotsky makes you think about the big picture even when he writes about smaller things.
