    Crucial Lessons for Fighting Fascism

    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 mperialist "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.

    Important writings for workers' movement today

    This is a fascinating collection, well worth taking time to read and study. It¿s the first in a 14-volume collection of writings by Leon Trotsky, one of the central leaders of the 1917 Russian Revolution. This one has over 75 articles, letters and interviews written between February and December 1929. This volume opens just as Trotsky was expelled from the Soviet Union by the bureaucratic misleaders headed by Joseph Stalin, who were increasingly fearful of any political debate in the country. Trotsky had been leading a political fight to reorient the Soviet Communist Party back to the revolutionary course it had followed in the early years of the revolution, before the death of V.I. Lenin. His writings here take up new developments in the Soviet Union, the challenges facing revolutionists -- especially clarifying their political perspectives and tasks under unexpected and difficult conditions, as well as major developments in world politics. Trotsky¿s dogged, realistic optimism in the possibility and necessity of working class victories and his determination to do all in his power to advance this struggle is really inspiring! I¿d recommend reading this series along with some other books of Trotsky¿s writings that are of great importance today, including The Revolution Betrayed, The Struggle Against Fascism in Germany, In Defense of Marxism, and The Transitional Program for Socialist Revolution.

    Trotsky challenges workers of 1932, and today

    In this book, Trotsky aimed to shake vanguard workers out of their routines, to awaken them to both the dangers and possibilities of what lay ahead in the thirties. These articles point to the danger of Hitler, the threat of war emerging from the weakness of capitalism, and the counter-revolutionary character of Stalinism. His article on ¿Proletarian¿ literature refutes the idea that workers could create our own culture without reshaping society. Trotsky underscores the revolutionary potential of U.S. workers and Black workers in particular. You will recognize, under the surface of today¿s events, the same great challenges that Trotsky described in 1932.

    Trotsky's writings: historical analysis that educates and inspires

    Here are some 80 short, incisive articles, letters and interviews: a week-by-week commentary and analysis of world events and the challenges facing working-class movements from one of the great revolutionaries, Leon Trotsky. A central leader of the Russian Revolution, though exiled by Stalin in the late 1920s, Trotsky writes with enduring confidence in the capacity of workers to learn, organize and fight. The economic collapse of the Great Depression; the rise of mass fascist movements; the drive of the Britain, Germany, Japan and the United States towards world war; leadership challenges facing working people, especially with the rise of Stalinism and the subordination of once-revolutionary Communist Parties to the conservative policies of Moscow¿s bureaucrats-- it¿s all here, with facts and clear, sharp analysis. In reading these pages, I was constantly drawn to make comparisons with the opening of the 21st century, from the rise of Le Pen in France and fascist movements in the U.S., the growing use of military force by Washington, and the spreading resistance of working people looking for a way out of the crisis we face. The big difference, of course, is the recent collapse of the Stalinist regimes and the myth that Moscow of the 1930s represented a revolutionary way forward. These writings are be an invaluable aid in understanding society today and figuring out what needs to be done next. The book includes fifty pages of notes that help a reader today understand the events and persons Trotsky discusses.
