A Rebel's Guide to Trotsky
A look at Trotsky's life, his ideas and what they have to offer us in the 21st century.
Leon Trotsky led one of the most remarkable lives of the 20th century.
Uniting ideas and action, Trotsky was a brilliant orator and Marxist theoretician, the key organiser of the October 1917 revolution and the architect of the Red Army's victory in the civil war that followed.
Fiercely opposing Stalin as the "Gravedigger of the revolution" he was expelled from Russia, forced to move from country to country and finally murdered by Stalin's assassin in Mexico in 1940.
Trotsky's ideas still have much to offer us today. His theory of "Permanent revolution" brilliantly grasped the dynamic of the revolutionary process in less developed countries, what today we call the Global South. His writngs on revolutionary strategy – above all the United Front – also remain invaluable.
The latest in this popular series looks at Trotsky's life, his ideas and what they have to offer us in the 21st century.
