  1. The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished Twentieth Century

    The Russian Revolution and the Unfinished Twentieth Century

    One hundred years after the outbreak of World War I and the Russian Revolution, none of the problems of the twentieth century—devastating wars, economic crises, social inequality, and the threat of dictatorship—have been solved. In fact, they are posed even more sharply today. David North argues against contemporary historians who maintain that the dissolution of the USSR signaled the “end of history” (Fukuyama), or the “short twentieth century”(Hobsbawm). Learn More

  2. In Defense of Leon Trotsky (second edition)

    In Defense of Leon Trotsky (second edition)

    David North defends Trotsky’s legacy against the campaign of historical falsification begun by Stalin and continuing to this day. While Stalin assassinated Trotsky in 1940, he was unable to silence the Fourth International, founded to embody the revolutionary heritage of 1917. This work contains a devastating refutation of biographies of Trotsky published in recent years by three British historians: Ian Thatcher, Geoffrey Swain and Robert Service. The significantly expanded edition contains a new foreword, four new chapters and two appendices. Learn More

  4. 1905 By Leon Trotsky

    1905 By Leon Trotsky

    1905 is an account by Trotsky of the events surrounding the great revolutionary uprising in Russia that year. Long out of print, this book is crucial reading for those seeking an understanding of these great events which served as a "dress rehearsal" for the 1917 Russian Revolution. In his introduction Trotsky notes that the experiences of the 1905 revolution laid his basis for the theory of Permanent Revolution, which formed the theoretical framework for the seizure of power by the Bolsheviks in 1917. The essays by Trotsky are written from the unique vantage point of a participant of the tumultuous events themselves. Learn More

  5. Fascism: What It Is and How to Fight It

    Fascism: What It Is and How to Fight It

    A collection of writings by Leon Trotsky on the question of fascism. Trotsky reviews the experience of the rise of fascism in Germany
    as well as the struggle in France against the emergence of armed fascist bands in the wake of the German catastrophe.

    In these essays Trotsky examines the political and social origins of fascism and elaborates the strategical and tactical methods for the defense of the working class against this deadly menace. Among the topics covered by Trotsky is the use of the united front and the arming of the working class for self defense. In all his writings he stresses the need for a revolutionary orientation by the working class as the basis for winning vacillating elements of the middle class to the side of socialism.

  7. Why Study the Russia Revolution? Volume I The February Revolution and the Development of Bolshevik Strategy

    Why Study the Russia Revolution? Volume I The February Revolution and the Development of Bolshevik Strategy

    The 1917 Russian Revolution of was the most significant event of the 20th Century. The taking of power by the Russian working class, under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky, transformed the course of human history and still reverberates to this day. Between February and October 1917, Russia was shaken by two monumental revolutions. The first overthrew the Romanov aristocracy that had ruled for more than 300 years. The second overthrew the bourgeois Provisional Government and established the first socialist workers state in history. These events continue to generate debate and controversy. The essays in this volume are unique, in that they are written from a Marxist perspective, looking back from the vantage point of 100 years, and putting the events of 1917 in a contemporary perspective, under conditions of a world wracked by immense social and political contradictions.

  9. New Immigrants and the Radicalization of American Labor 1914-1924

    New Immigrants and the Radicalization of American Labor 1914-1924

    Thomas Mackaman calls “the phenomenon of mass international immigration” the “most consciously-experienced element” of the contradiction between the growth in the productive forces and capitalist social relations based in the nation-state system. He has done what historians must strive to do: hold a lantern to those overlooked but decisive moments in history the lessons of which must be assimilated to combat political reaction today. New Immigrants and the Radicalization of American Labor is not a general labor history of the 1914-24 period. Instead, the book is centered on three specific sections of the working class in the US: coal miners in Illinois, steelworkers in the 1919 national steel strike, and miners in Northern Minnesota’s iron range. The three industries were constituent parts of the emerging national steel industry and were linked by the Great Lakes as an internal waterway. Learn More
