The Permanent Revolution & Results and Prospects

Front Cover
Aakar Books, 2005 - Communism - 265 pages
The Permanent Revolution & Results And Prospects Contains Leon Trotsky S Original Theory Of Permanent Revolution And Its Later Elucidation. The Theory, Which Can Be Traced Back To Karl Marx, Was Developed By Trotsky About A Century Ago. It Helped To Explain The Socialist Revolution In The-Then Backward Russia And Enriched The Theoretical Arsenal Of Revolutionary Marxism. However It Became, During The So-Called Stalin Era, An Anathema. And Its Theoretician, Trotsky, The Co-Leader Of The Russian Proletariat Along With Lenin During The October Revolution And The Legendry Creator Of The Red Army, Was Driven Away From His Own Land. He Was Hounded Out From Country To County And Ultimately Brutally Assassinated In Mexico In 1940 By A Representative Of Stalin S Death Squads. This New Edition Of The Book, Published From India, Would Be Of Immense Use To Activists, Researchers And Students Of This Country And Abroad. It Would Fulfil A Long-Standing Demand, Created Due To Unavailability Of The Book In This Part Of The World And A Renewed Interest, Throughout The World, In The Legacy Of Trotsky, Especially Since The Collapse Of Actually Existing Socialism In The Ussr And Eastern Europe.
