Product description


"The greatest history of an event that I know."
--C. L. R. James

"Justly celebrated as a towering, vivid, historically vital work."
--China Miéville, October

"The History is his crowning work, both in scale and power and as the fullest expression of his ideas on revolution. As an account of a revolution, given by one of its chief actors, it stands unique in world literature."
--Isaac Deutscher

"I would routinely smuggle copies of Trotsky's History of the Russian Revolution into the USSR--so our colleagues could know a little about their own political beginnings."
--Carl Sagan

"This passionate, partisan and beautifully written account by a major participant in the revolution, written during his exile on the isle of Prinkipo in Turkey, remains one of the best accounts of 1917. No counter-revolutionary, conservative or liberal, has been able to compete with this telling."

--Tariq Ali

About the Author

Leon Trotsky was a key leader of the Russian Revolution. Forced into exile in 1928, Trotsky devoted the rest of his life to fighting the degeneration of the revolution and rise of a new dictatorial regime. Vilified and isolated, he fought an uncompromising battle with the Stalinist bureaucracy, defending the revolutionary and internationalist principles upon which the revolution was based. In 1940, he was murdered by an agent of the Stalinist regime.

Max Eastman (1883-1969) was a poet, journalist, founding editor of The Masses, and one of Leon Trotsky's earliest American collaborators.
