The tragedy of Leon Trotsky

£9.99

Product description

Leon Davidovich Trotsky was born in 1879 and assassinated in Mexico in 1940. In Stalin's Russia his name became synonymous with the darkest treachery. In the rest of the world, for many on the Left, he became, and remains, the untarnished hero of the Russian Revolution and the prophet of the World Revolution-To-Come. In this major reassessment, published to mark the centenary of his birth, Ronald Segal penetrates beyond these contradictory myths to consider the man himself and his role in the Bolshevik Revolution, in the Civil War, and in the struggle of ideas in the twentieth century. He argues convincingly for a view of Trotsky as the ultimate revolutionary man, as uomo universale in the Renaissance sense: thinker and artist, historian and scientist, politician and consummate military leader. With subtlety and skill he shows how the balance between the multiple aspects of Trotsky's personality were crucial in determining the drama of his life.
