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.
The Suppression of Philosophy in the USSR
Yakhot describes the flourishing of philosophical discussion in the newly-established Soviet Union, and its subsequent destruction by Stalin. Rare among works dealing with this period, this is an objective account of the theoretical role of the major figures in the early Soviet Union, including that of Leon Trotsky, co-leader with Lenin of the Russian Revolution of October 1917.
Originally published in Russian in 1981, this unique history of early Soviet philosophy is now available for the first time in English, translated by Frederick Choate
