4.0 out of 5 stars Obscure topic, but worthwhile if you need it, 26 April 2004
This review is from: International Trotskyism, 1929-85: A Documented Analysis of the Movement (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.
