One of Marxism's most important texts, The Rveolution Betrayed explores the fate of the Russian Revolution after Lenin's death.
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 employs facts, figures, and statistics to show how Stalinist policies rejected the enormous productive potential of the nationalized planned economy engendered by the October Revolution.
Six decades after the the publication of this classic, the shattering of Stalnist regimes in Russia and Eastern Europe has confused and demoralized countless political activists. The Revolution betrayed offers readers of every political persuasion an insider's view of what went wrong.
Unabridged republication of The Revolution Betrayed: What Is the Soviet Union and Where Is It Going?, published by Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., Garden City, New York, 1937.
