Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

First published in 1937, this work contains the thoughts from exile on the development of the Bolshevik revolution by one of its central early figures, Leon Trotsky. Trotsky addresses the economic gains of the Soviet Union, the economic policy shifts of the Soviet leadership, the triumph of Stalin in what Trotsky dubs the "Soviet Thermidor"-an analogy to the period of reaction after the French Revolution; inequality and social antagonism under Stalin, foreign policy and the military, and the possible future directions of the Soviet Union, which Trotsky describes as a "degenerated workers state." Also available in Spanish as La revolucion traicionada. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In 1917 the working class and peasantry of Russia carried out one of the most deep-going revolutions in history. Yet within ten years a political counterrevolution was under way. Workers and peasants were driven from power by a privileged bureaucratic social layer whose chief spokeperson was Joseph Stalin. This classic study of the Soviet workers state and its degeneration illuminates the roots of the social and political crisis shaking the countries of the Soviet Union today.
