Trotskyism: A Look Back Through the Years

Vadim Z. Rogovin

This is the first in a seven-volume series by the Russian Marxist historian, Vadim Rogovin, on the history of the Soviet Union between 1922 and 1940. Rogovin traces the complex inner-party struggles of 1923–1927, analyzing contemporaneous official documents, speeches and articles, Soviet archival material, memoirs of participants in political life, and documents by members of the Left Opposition that were suppressed in the Soviet Union for many decades.


1937: Stalin’s Year of Terror

Vadim Z. Rogovin

A major work of original historical research, 1937 provides a detailed and penetrating analysis of the causes and consequences of Stalin’s purges.
The author, an eminent Russian Marxist historian, argues that it is impossible to understand these tragic events apart from Stalin’s determination to wipe out all vestiges of the socialist opposition to his regime, above all, that associated with Leon Trotsky.
