This volume chronicles invaluable lessons for the world working-class movement from two critical years. The year 1933 saw the worst defeat for the working class ever in Germany. Hitler came to power because the Communist Party, obeying Stalin's orders, and the Socialist Party refused to band together, although they led the majority of working people. Trotsky, whose collaborators were grouped in the International Left Opposition, declared an end to any effort to reform the world-wide Communist Parties. Instead, he called for a new world party to fight for socialist revolution in the capitalist countries and political revolution within the Soviet Union.

The years 1933-34 saw the victory of fascism in Germany without a shot fired, and armed workers' resistance to fascism and semi-fascist governemnts in Austria and Spain. The Stalinized Communist International was communist no more; it showed itself to be a counterrevolutionary instrument of the Stalin bureaucracy's doubling-dealing with world imperialism at the workers' expense, moving our best fighting elements around and sacrificing them like chess pieces. In this book, the co-leader with V.I. Lenin of the Russian Revolution, Leon Trotsky, analyzes these events with one end in mind: to figure out WHAT TO DO about them, how to build revolutionary parties to lead the workers and farmers to power; to defeat fascism and 'democratic' imperialism by socialist revolution and workers' power, and thereby prevent the holocaust that was World War II. If this sounds like stuff fighters need today as the Yankee Empire and its European rivals-'allies' march us working people into a new Great Depression, and towards fascism and World War II, then do yourself a favor and buy this book and study it as a guide to action today.

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 t week, month to month, year to year basis across from 1929 until 1940. You end up reading the nextarticle, and the next article, and you have to discipline yourself to put it down if you can. A constantfeature 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 evolutionary 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 themiddle class bureaucrats in the former Soviet Union and China, how to win with workers, farmers, women and oppressed women.
