  1. Why Study the Russian Revolution? Volume I The February Revolution and the Development of Bolshevik Strategy

    Why Study the Russian 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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

  7. The Commissar Vanishes (new edition)

    The Commissar Vanishes (new edition)

    "In The Commissar Vanishes (1997), King investigated and exposed the falsification of Soviet history practiced by the Stalinist regime, as inconvenient figures were excised from photographs and art works. King commented: 'The physical eradication of Stalin's political opponents at the hands of the secret police was swiftly followed by their obliteration from all forms of pictorial existence.' "'In one notorious example (which appears on the cover of the book), a photograph of Stalin with three other Communist Party leaders (including Sergey Kirov) taken in the mid-1920s is worked over through the years, with all of the other figures eventually disappearing, finally leaving by 1940, in a painting based on the photo, only the gravedigger of the revolution.'"

  8. Was There an Alternative to Stalinism in the USSR?

    Was There an Alternative to Stalinism in the USSR?

    In these two essays Russian Marxist Historian Vadim Rogovin refutes the claim that the rise of Stalinism in the USSR was the inexorable product of the October Revolution. He demonstrates that there existed a strong movement led by Leon Trotsky which offered a realistic alternative to Stalinism and that a struggle against this movement was the primary function of the Stalinist terror.
