Description

Written in 1936 and published the following year, this brilliant and profound evaluation of Stalinism from the Marxist standpoint prophesied the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Trotsky's analysis of the Soviet Union and Stalinism in the 1930s.
LibraryThing member Urbandale
Largely polemic, lots of mixed metaphors, and even casual racism. Basically, it reads like period Leninist texts.
