Joanne Murphy from Iowa, US This volume contains lessons crucial for those committed to the goal of emancipating working people and oppressed nations. The workers movement of that time was misled by parties - social democratic and fake communist -- which preferred imperialist 'democracy' over workers revolution. This allowed fascism to triumph and, together with 'democratic' imperialism, brought us the second world war which slaughtered tens of millions and included the U.S. - supposedly the most 'democratic' imperialists - initiating the threat of human extinction with the nuclear bombing of Japan. Trotsky explains how Lenin's program could have resulted in workers victories over capitalism all over Europe, as well as the overthrow of the murderous Stalin regime and the regeneration of the Soviet Union on a course of world revolution and workers democracy. Studying Trotsky's writings today is timely as imperialism is again on the march toward fascism and war.

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.
