Book Description

1 Dec 1991
This is a documentary history of the origins, development and nature of the Trotskyist movement around the world. Drawing on interviews and correspondence with Trotskyists, newspaper reports and pamphlets, historical writings including the annotated writings of Trotsky in both English and French, historical memoirs of Trotskyist leaders, and documents of the Fourth International, it recounts the history of the movement since Trotsky's exile from the USSR in 1929. Organized alphabetically in a double-column, country-by-country format, the book charts the formation and growth of Trotskyism in more than 65 countries, providing biographic information about its most influential leaders, detailed accounts of Trotsky's personal involvement in the development of the movement in each country, and thorough reports of its various factions and splits. Multiple chapters are reserved for countries where the movement was more active or fully developed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Obscure topic, but worthwhile if you need it 26 April 2004
Format:Hardcover
Any history or politics student coming clean to the multitude of groupingsthat make up Leon Trotsky's latter-day followers will welcome this book,as it gives a broadly correct overview of all the various squabblingoutfits and how they all relate to each other. On a micro level the bookfalls down from time to time: too many names are mis-spelt ("Colin"instead of Corin Redgrave, "Paul" instead of Hall Greenland, to name justtwo examples out of dozens), and some of the explanations for thepositions of the groups are too hastily wrapped up by a quick review of asect's newspaper headlines. On the other hand, many of these outfits havesoldiered on with a mere handful of members, and while a comprehensiveaccount has to acknowledge their existence, their relevance is often sominor that a cursory glance is probably more than enough. So, on balance,this is a solid overview - especially in those areas where Alexander ismore comfortable - such as the US and Latin America.

Any history or politics student coming clean to the multitude of groupings that make up Leon Trotsky's latter-day followers will welcome this book, as it gives a broadly correct overview of all the various squabbling outfits and how they all relate to each other.

On the other hand, many of these outfits have soldiered on with a mere handful of members, and while a comprehensive account has to acknowledge their existence, their relevance is often so minor that a cursory glance is probably more than enough.
